I have Small Business Server 2000 using Active Directory and Terminal Server.
How can I keep an individual user from having access to the shut down command on the start menu.

I inherited this box from someone so the policies members etc.. are all screwy. I know I have to adjust the rights of all users to disable this from being active but I need a quick fix until I can sort all that out.

You have to adjust the policy on the DC OU to disable the users from being able to shut down the controller. If it was a member server, you could simply adjust the Local policy, but a DC disables the local policy.

How do I adjust the policy. This is the DC.

Open active Directory Users and Computers, select the Domain Controllers Organizational Unit, Right click, select properties, click on group policy, and click edit.
The setting you are looking for is:
Computer Configuration>Windows Settings>User Rights>Force shut down from remote system.
Add the users you want to have the rights to do that (I would recommend the domain admins at the very least)
and then enable to policy.
That should fix you up.
I stand corrected. In the Admin tools, there are two other ways to get to this setting. My apologies. You can access the local security policy, and the domain controller security policy. It's in the same location, however, in both places.
Good Luck!
