How exactly do I allow an account to only logon as a service thereby preventing anybody logging on with that account on a workstation/server?  (for Active Directory - DC's running SP4).

thanks.

Setup a user account - add it to the local Administrator group and remove it from the Domain User group.  Create a complex password and record it.  Lock that in your HR's vault.

Using Group Policy, set the security option for "log on as a service" by adding that user.

In the user's properties, set the option to only be able to log into the server.

Hope that helps.

Create an standard account, make it an administrator. If you change the domain controller security policy or domain security policy and set the access rights to allow the logon as a service and not logon as interactive. This will prevent the user login on but permit use as a service.
