Hi guys, I currently have a domain server. I recently discovered that a Domain User can login to the console. I created a Test.User account in Active Directory and ONLY gave that user Domain User group. I then went to the server and was able to login. I am currently blocking GPO to this server, I went in and checked the Local Security Policies and the only thing I see that stands out is this account NT AUTHORITY/Authenticated Users (S-1-5-11)

How can I keep domain users from logging in

I cant dent Domain Users there, as EVERYONE in the organization MUST be a member of Domain Users. That policy supersedes the Allow, therefore noone including domain admins could log in

Local Administrators, And a Domain Group I created to allow LOCAL logon, I have added 3 people to it. However, like I said, ALL users have Domain users group, so If I deny that, it supersedes the Allow policy

You mentioned in your question that Authenticated Users is in there... where do you see that?

What groups is the Test.User user account in?  Run 'net user Test.User' to list them.

If it's true that only local admins and the one domain group you created are allowed to logon locally by policy, then the only possible explanation is that you have nested the group domain users into your group of local admins or domain admins. Please check that. Also double check the group that you created.
