Windows NT Server: " ..local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively."

When I try to logon into a Windows NT Server computer using an Admistrator logon (which is correct and valid), I get a messaging saying "The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interatively." and all other logons, which are not Admin privilege, do not work either.

Any solution?

Can you log into the machine at all? (as some other admin?)

You need to go into User Manager, and Policies menu, user rights policy....there's a user right called 'log in interactively' (or something to that general affect) - you need to be granted this user right in order to log in at the pc.

login to a remote machine as the domain admin

then reset the properties of the admin account to logon interactively.

you can map a drive to the server and run up the usrmgr to do this.
