Hi Everybody,

I need to write a VBscript that will take remove service account from “Log on as a service” policy on the local computer.

I found a VB script which give user logon as service right but I need a VB script to remove user account from “Logon as a service” on local computer.

Thanks.

Use the same script you found, except modify it to find the line with

SeServiceLogonRight =

After it is found, find either ",domain\user" and replace it with nothing or
after it is found, find either "domain\user," and replace it with nothing or
after it is found, find either "pcname\user," and replace it with nothing or
after it is found, find either ",pcname\user" and replace it with nothing or
after it is found, find either "user," and replace it with nothing or
after it is found, find either ",user" and replace it with nothing or (yes, let's try to be complete :) ), because you don't want the rest to be replaced, as mine says:

SeServiceLogonRight = *S-1-5-20,ASPNET

which would mess up a couple of things if I just empy the whole string to
SeServiceLogonRight =

(meaning no one will have the right)

Hi Wizard,


Here is the vb script from ...
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/scriptcenter/en-US/bef48a92-6b59-481f-aab7-990ae2d4f31a/vbscript-to-give-user-logon-as-service-right?forum=ITCG

------------------------------------------------------
Username = <domain\username>  'modify with your username
Dim oShell
Set oShell = CreateObject ("WScript.Shell")
  oShell.Run "secedit /export /cfg config.inf", 0, true
  oShell.Run "secedit /import /cfg config.inf /db database.sdb", 0, true
FileName = "config.inf"
OrgStr = "SeServiceLogonRight ="
RepStr = "SeServiceLogonRight = " & Username & ","
Set inputFile = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").OpenTextFile("config.inf", 1,1,-1)
    strInputFile = inputFile.ReadAll
inputFile.Close
Set inputFile = Nothing
   
Set outputFile = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").OpenTextFile("config.inf",2,1,-1)
outputFile.Write (Replace(strInputFile,OrgStr,RepStr))
outputFile.Close
    Set outputFile = Nothing
   
oShell.Run "secedit /configure /db database.sdb /cfg config.inf",0,true
set oShell= Nothing

Set obj = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
obj.DeleteFile("config.inf")
obj.DeleteFile("database.sdb")

-----------------

I tried to change it as you recommended but it does not seem to work for me. Would you please let me know what am I missing?

Thanks.

This should be it:

Username = "domain\username"  'modify with your username

FileName = "config.inf"
Dim oShell 
Set oShell = CreateObject ("WScript.Shell")
oShell.Run "secedit /export /cfg " & Filename, 0, true 
oShell.Run "secedit /import /cfg config.inf /db database.sdb", 0, true

Set inputFile = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").OpenTextFile(Filename, 1,1,-1)
    strInputFile = inputFile.ReadAll
inputFile.Close
Set inputFile = Nothing

splitstring = split(strInputFile,vbcrlf)
for each line in splitstring
	if instr(line,"SeServiceLogonRight") >  0 then
		OrgStr =  line
	end if
next
RepStr = Replace(OrgStr,Username,"")
RepStr = Replace(RepStr," = ,"," = ")
RepStr = Replace(RepStr,",,",",")

Set outputFile = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").OpenTextFile(Filename,2,1,-1)
outputFile.Write (Replace(strInputFile,OrgStr,RepStr))
outputFile.Close
Set outputFile = Nothing
    
oShell.Run "secedit /configure /db database.sdb /cfg config.inf",0,true
set oShell= Nothing

Set obj = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
obj.DeleteFile("config.inf") 
obj.DeleteFile("database.sdb")

Open in new window

Also, if using newer Windows, you don't have the correct rights when double clicking the vbs. So, run cmd in administrator mode, then use:
"cscript script.vbs"
