Replace a process level token
This policy setting allows one process or service to start another service or process with a different security access token, which can be used to modify the security access token of that sub-process and result in the escalation of privileges.
When configuring a user right in the SCM enter a comma delimited list of accounts. Accounts can be either local or located in Active Directory, they can be groups, users, or computers.
For member servers, ensure that only the Local Service and Network Service accounts have the Replace a process level token user right.
On most computers, this is the default configuration and there will be no negative impact. However, if you have installed optional components such as ASP.NET or IIS, you may need to assign the Replace a process level token privilege to additional accounts. For example, IIS requires that the Service, Network Service, and IWAM_ accounts be explicitly granted this user right.
