local user accounts

local user accounts allow users to log on only to the computer on which the local user account has been created and to access resources on only that computer. when you create a local user account, windows xp professional creates the account only in that computers security database, called the local security database. windows xp professional uses the local security database to authenticate the local user account, which allows the user to log on to that computer. windows xp professional does not replicate local user account information to any other computer.

characteristics of local user accounts
