My company set up a new user on W2003server and gave it all rights as administator.  The server is set up with workgroup, not domain, so can't give it domain user, but gave it everything else listed except user/power user.
It will not let that user log on.  Any ideas appreciated.

No firewall installed yet - it's an intranet.

can you logon with admin?

start - run - gpedit.msc

compuer settings - windows settings - security settings - local policies - user rights assignment - allow logon locally

add your user into that group and make sure he isnt denied in the "deny logon locally" policy under the same path

Group was already there - added the user and still won't allow log on.
Administrator works fine.

The system could not log you on.  Make sure your user name and domain are correct (did try with user domain) then type your password again.  I reset the password again just to make sure I knew it correctly.

>>>did try with user domain

this statement confuses me, you are trying just with local accounts yes

Yes - just local - it's on an intranet.  We will move it out once it's set up.

Please close this question - turns out the user had set their password the same as someone elses - changed it and it worked great!
