"The local policy of this system does not permit you to log on interactively."

When trying to log on at my Windows 2003 SBS, I have started getting the following message: "The local policy of this system does not permit you to log on interactively", regardless of which account I use, including the Administrator. I've tried using the ntrights tool to fix the problem but it still won't let me log in.

I can however Remote Desktop in without any problems, but it would be nice every once in a while to actually be able to sit down at the server and do maintenance.

Thanks!

jeremyleff,

when you remote in - start - run - gpedit.msc - compt config - windows settings - secuirty settings - local policies - user rights assignment

check for wqho is in deny logon locally and the logon locally options

Regards,

James

I had this on a win2k DC once - a reboot cleared it and it never returned.

After some digging through AD U&C turns out the Admins Groups was under the Domain Controllers group and that was restricting access. Don't know how that happened!
