Need for "Manage auditing and security log" User Right

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Jeffrey Harris, Oct 10, 2008.

  1. We recently had some issues with installing updates that were resolved by
    reassigning the "Manage auditing and security log" user right to
    administrators.

    The problem is that the organization I supports requires strict separation
    of duties between administrators and security managers, and we need to
    prevent administrators from tampering with auditing or security logs.

    Is there a reason that this user right is specifically needed to install
    Windows Updates? Is there a workaround? If not, can Microsoft consider
    changing a future version of automatic updates to not require this particular
    user right?

    Thanks.
