I am trying to assign the backup and restore privilege to some users on our network. No matter what I do the required privileges are not set.
1. Open gpmc.msc
2. Under Default Domain Policy (or any other policy I create) Edit GPO
3. Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Security Policy -> User Rights Assignment I enable the Backup Files and Directories right and Restore Files and Directories right and assign a group to this (I have tried, Domain Users, Authenticated Users, the actual name of an account logging on)
4. Run gpupdate /force on the machine logging onto
When I logon with one of the accounts I want to have the privileges and run a program which dumps the privileges assigned to the user token neither the backup nor the restore privilege is there.
I have successfully done this in a Win2k3 environment without problems.
I even tried copying the Administrator account and trying with that - no joy did not work. The Administrator account has the privileges I am looking for.
