Non Administrator needs server shutdown access
Posted on 2012-04-02
Hello, new guy here on the site, hopfully can get a solid answer from the pros. :)
I have a user who needs the ability to shutdown / restart a Windows 2003 Citrix server without domain admin rights. I currently have him in the backup operators group, print operators group and server operators group, but he still has no permissions to restart the servers in the domain. When he tries, the only opions available are log off and disconnect.
Since this is a domain account, what can be done to make this happen? We mainly want him to be able to add printers, and restart our citrix servers when necessary.
Am I going about this correctly so he can acomplish this task, or is there a better way of going about this?
