Allow connection fallback to NTLM

Tathagata Bhattacharya 125 Reputation points


Presently in our environment "Allow connection fallback to NTLM is enabled" and we are getting a notification stating it can be a security risk.

Can you please recommend if we should leave it enabled or we should disable it.NTLM.jpg

Thank you.

    If you disable it, you are risking your workloads that do not support Kerberos to break.

    Rather than disabling it, you should track the usage of NTLM in your environment and address it proactively

    Im getting the same notification but definitely dont have this enabled. I have 4 primary sites where this has been disabled for a loooong time, and yet this notification is appearing at console-launch. Anybody seen that before?
