local logon right - how to assign?

I setup IIS 5.0 in a Windows 2000 server machine. This machine is a domain controller. For a user in the domain, it needs to have or belong to a group with local logon rights.

How do I assign local logon rights to a user and/or to a group?

Thank you.

Using AD, you would use Group Policy and assign the right in Computer Configuration> Windows Settings> Security Settings> Local Policies> User Rights Assignments.

You could also do the same things with Local Group Policy but this method is not recommended. You would use GPEDIT.MSC.

There are 3 places you can assign the User Rights
Assignment of "Log on locally".  Which place you use
depends on what type of server you are running.
Go to Administrative Tools and choose Domain Security
Policy, Domain Controller Security Policy, or Local
Security Policy.  Go to Security Settings>Local
Policies>User Rights Assignment>Log on locally and assign
the right to the users or groups you want to.
