Win 7 XP Comp mode. Domain login error = The local policy of this system does not permit you to login interactively

Hi

We have our first Windows 7 user in a Windows XP network. There is one application the firm uses that needs XP so we thought we would give XP compatibility mode a try.

I launched the virtual image and connected that to the domain and all seemed well. However on revisiting to proceed the setup, I am unable to log on with the message

"The local policy of this system does not permit you to login interactively"

So note, the user is loged onto the domain in Windows 7, but also the virtual image is also trying to login as the same user.

Note there is no problem in the network for the same user to be loged into more then one PC. The virutal image was setup to get it's own IP address directly from the network.

Any ideas on how I can resolve this?

Try this on the XP machine.  You will probably need to log in as a local administrator.  Go into the Control Panel and go into Administrator Tools.  Go to Local Security Policy.  Then in Local Policies and under Rights Assignment check that your username is under Allow Log On Locally and check that it is not under Deny Log On Locally.

You need to make the user a member of the "Remote Desktop User's" group.

Oh by the way, I am running Windows 7 with the XP mode using the same configuration as you as well. When the XP mode comes out of hibernation, it can take up to three minutes for it to reconnect to the domain and allow you to log in. If it gives you the message, just wait about 30 seconds and try it again. I do this every day.

CPetrich12: Did you check if your XP is assigned the Domain Controller as your DNS? MS DNS si not a DNS it is also a pointer to the LDAP. and KErberos services.

afflik1923: This is not peculiar to Windows 7 indeed. In fact Windows does not add people on "remote desktop users" when a user is not a power-user. It is something to do with windows priivileges.

Cheers,K

Hmmm slight problem, I have forgotten the password I used for the local account. I guess I'm going to have to start the image again right?

Silly of me but as I was testing it out and it asked me right away fora username and password I did not make a note of what I choose and now cannot get back in to the local PC.

very annoying but I guess it's easy to start again, I hope.

In this case you might like to use a program such as this: It comes with its own bootable distro :

http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

Offline NT & Registry Editor. I will reset the password  without the need to know the old password. Just download write to iso and boot off CD. Then follow the instructions.

Hooraaah, I'm back into the main image. It was the XPMuser username I was getting wrong which it choose.
anyway,going back to


"You need to make the user a member of the "Remote Desktop User's" group. "

The thing is I am unable to do this. When I try and add the domain user to the group, because the XP image is not currenlty attached to the domain I can't look up the user to add it.
I hope this makes sense.
So how can I add the user. Not also that currenlty the laptop is not in the office where the server is, however the Windows 7 host is attached via VPN and it is loged onto the domain.

Again hope I make sense.
Guidence apprecaited.

After I finally added the user to the administrators group, although at first I could not login, when coming back to the problem a few weeks later (When I again had access to the laptop) I was able to log in to the user accounton the domain and able to comeplete the task. So all well it seems.
Thanks for all input.
