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...

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