Good morning,

I seem to be seeing some issue with a domain account logging on as a service.

I have create a domain account called 'supav' and have only given it domain user privileges across the domain.

I have used GPO to add this account to the local administrators group on each server which is on the domain. This seems to work with no problem. I created a group called 'Monitoring' and added this and added 'supav' to this group. This seems to be working OK. I again, used GPO, to add the 'monitoring' group to an individual GPO which I have included the 'monitoring' group as authorised to 'Log on as a service'. I have applied this 2 a contain sitting in AD, which contains just 2 of our servers running windows server 2012.

When logging onto the servers and changing the particular service to run as this supav account, I am being prompted that this account is able to start the service as it has the authroisation to do so.

However at 2am each morning, the service stops and starts it self again. However, the service fails to start with the following error:

The kladminserver service was unable to log on as domain\supav with the currently configured password due to the following error:
Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.
 
Service: kladminserver
Domain and account: domain\supav
 
This service account does not have the required user right "Log on as a service."
 
User Action
 
Assign "Log on as a service" to the service account on this computer. You can use Local Security Settings (Secpol.msc) to do this. If this computer is a node in a cluster, check that this user right is assigned to the Cluster service account on all nodes in the cluster.
 
If you have already assigned this user right to the service account, and the user right appears to be removed, check with your domain administrator to find out if a Group Policy object associated with this node might be removing the right.

If i go to the server and key in the credentials again and click 'OK' I am able to start the service and all services resume normal activity. Has anyone ever seen this before and know of a solution to this?

thanks in advance.

Hi,

This definitely looks like a Group Policy Setting.  Check the Settings for Group Policy for the container where the server object of the server where the account is attempting logon.  When you re-configure the service the account temporarily gets the right, but later Group Policy changes the accounts allowed that right for the server.

When I had specified the group, I hadn't put the domain name in. Modified this so it was listed as domain\supav, ran a GP update and this seems to have resolved the issue.

thank you for your help.
