Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

This test configures Nessus so that
it knows if it should query local information
on each host or information pertaining to
the domain (ie: requests will be forwarded
to the PDC).

If you test a single workstation, you
want information about the domain. If
you test the whole network, including
the PDC, you won't want redundant information.

See the tests preferences panel for details.
