By default MSS settings are not visible in Windows Operating system and Servers.

Eg. MSS: (AutoAdminLogon) Enable Automatic Logon, MSS: (EnableICMPRedirect) Allow ICMP redirects to override OSPF generated routes etc

These additional group policy settings were developed by the Microsoft Solutions for Security group and are documented in the appropriate security guides.

For Windows Server 2008 is available here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17606

There are two methods to enable MSS settings :

1.       Using Microsoft Security Compliance tool.
2.       Editing sceregvl.inf file.

  • Using Microsoft Security Compliance tool.

1.       Download Security compliance manager from here : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/solutionaccelerators/cc835245.aspx

5.       Open command prompt and browse to : “C:\Program Files (x86)\LocalGPO”
