What is the lest privilege needed to log on to a Windows Server 2008?
Posted on 2009-12-28
I am studying for a microsoft certification - focusing on Windows Server 2008. In the course litterature one is supposed to log on to the server from time to time as a regular user - to test several different things. This is supposed to be possible if the user account is added to the "print operator" group (as a least privilege needed, to log on to the server).
But I am not able to log in to the server, being a member of the "print operators", and "domain users" - I just get the message that the logon failed with these credentials. Is there some other group which I should use instead?
(I know this is not best practice in a real production environment.)
