you have a policy that is denying "Log on Locally" and have applied it to either the administrators or everyone group

Is there I way around this...

Last time we were on the server console...we set up the backup...and attempted to install remote access...but then uninstalled the remote access..


but later that day I went in and set the backup to go off later that night...

I am going over to the server in about an 1.5 hour...will see it for myself. I am getting this from the president of the company who was tryinng to log inot the server console to retrieve a file...

I'm an idiot. I forgot to set the domain security policy inside of administrative tools. This might help someone else!
==============

We just had this problem. All W2K machines refused logon either locally or to the domain with the message Local security policy will not allow interactive logon. NT4 and XP clients were not affected, W2K machines which had not been logged off overnight were not affected. The Servers themselves (W2K) were not affected. Rebooting an unaffected W2K client caused it to develope the problem.
The fault turned out to be that the previous day we had authorised one user to logon interactively to the server and added his name to the domain security policy for interactive logon. This seems to have then disabled access for all other users including Administrator on W2K machines. Removing the username and rebooting clients restored the system to normal.

After modifying the Group Policy, type secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy /enforce at a command prompt, press ENTER, and then press ENTER.


That solved MY problem.
========================

from the administrative tools choose domain controller security policy
windows setting
security setting
local policies
user rights assignment
log on locally
you should add interactive

if its every machine in the nework then its at GPO or domain level if its just one server its in the local policy.

secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy /enforce

is replaced by gpupdate with windows 2003 server
