ARCHIVED: What is the tool that disables LM/NTLMv1, and where can I get it?

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Resources linked from this page may no longer be available or reliable.

Due to security flaws that can allow unauthorized access to restricted resources, UITS has disabled support for the LAN Manager (LM) and NT LAN Manager Version 1 (NTLMv1) authentication protocols. Since certain network resources, such as printing to Residential Technology Center (RTC) printers or mapping network drives, depend on network authentication, you need to run a tool UITS created to configure your computer to disable insecure LM and NTLMv1 authentication protocols. You can obtain this tool free of charge from IUware.

Note:
If your Windows computer is joined to Indiana University's ADS domain, you do not need to run this tool. To see if your computer is joined to the ADS domain:

Windows 10

  1. Search System in the Start menu.
  2. Select System.
  3. On the next screen, under "Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings", look for "Domain:". If you see "ads.iu.edu", your computer is joined to the ADS domain. If not, you may need to run the tool.

    If you see "Workgroup" instead of "Domain:", you may also need to run the tool.

Windows 8.x

  1. Open Desktop mode.
  2. Press Win-c, and then click Settings.
  3. Click PC Info, and the system will display whether or not it is in the ADS domain.

Windows 7

  1. Right-click Computer, located on your desktop or in your Start menu, and select Properties.
  2. On the next screen, under "Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings", look for "Domain:". If you see "ads.iu.edu", your computer is joined to the ADS domain. If not, you may need to run the tool.

    If you see "Workgroup" instead of "Domain:", you may also need to run the tool.
