Hi,
my domain users have policies to run logon logoff vbs script. I must denied logon for some users.
This is the code:
......
For Each os In GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate,(shutdown,remoteshutdown)}!//" +        
                objNet.Computername).InstancesOf("Win32_OperatingSystem")
         retCode = os.Win32Shutdown(4, 0)
Next
......
objNet.Computername is the PC to shutdown.

When the administrator runs the code, the pc shutdown normally. Any other user get this error message:

Code 80041062, privilege not available. (iswbemobject)

The error is on the line retCode = os.Win32Shutdown(4, 0)

With DCOMCNFG everything seems OK for the application Windows Management Instrumentation.

Any suggestion?

Thank you

I'm sorry; not shutdown computer but logoff; Users does not have privilege to shutdown computer and I don't want to assign them the right.


os.Win32Shutdown(4, 0)
4 means logoff, right??


Thanks

See http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/wmisdk/wmi/win32shutdown_method_in_class_win32_operatingsystem.asp ("Win32Shutdown Method of the Win32_OperatingSystem Class") - it clearly states that "On computer systems running Windows® NT/Windows 2000, the calling process must have the SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME privilege", regardless of what the parameters are...

I am not too familiar with WMI, but http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wmisdk/wmi/win32_privilegesstatus.asp ("Win32_PrivilegesStatus") should help.
