I have a generic standard user account that needs to be able to shutdown and restart domain joined servers. Since doing some Microsoft patching the user can no longer perform these functions. I read that adding the user to any of these groups would accomplish the task: Server Operators, Print Operators, or Backup Operators. That is just not the case anymore. Adding the user to any of those groups did not give them shut down and restart capabilities.
Any thoughts on how to accomplish this? Should I modify the Server Operator group to be able to do this?
