Non-interactive AD account

Hi Experts,

Is there a way I can create a non-interactive or 'lowest permission level' account/group for cerain users who require RADIUS access?

Basically, I have a group of users who have an AD account for the purposes of authenticating via wireless via RADIUS using their non-domain member devices (laptops, Andriod devices etc..) and I need their logins to only work for the sole purpose of authenticating via wireless via RADIUS with no interactive logon access to any domain workstation etc...

I currently have these users in the Domain Guests, Guests group and a security group defining wireless access for the NPS policy, however of course they will still be able to login interactively.

I did create another security group for the sole purpose of 'flagging' the user for non-interactive logon by adding that security group to the 'Deny Logon Locally' group policy and having my non-interactive users in that group as well, however this also cut off authentication via wireless via RADIUS :(

I would check for that AD LDS instance. It can be used for authentication but cannot be use for user logon. I don't know if it works for that scenario (I've never done this before) But maybe you are interested in this subject and can dig something in the Internet?

For reference please start with this MS article at

I was more leaning to just putting the user into a group that had limited access rather than using LDS. E.g. now they are in the Guest group + the WIFI security group.
