Logon Failure: The user has not been granted the requested logon type at this Computer.

This started today.  Rebuilt a desktop with windows 7 and the first thing I noticed wrong when I login as the user is that the login script did not run.  First thing I tried to do is verify the sysvol share is available.  When I try to access it I get, "Logon Failure: The user has not been granted the requested logon type at this Computer."  The only thing that has changed aside from the gazillion patches MS has released lately is I developed a number of Group Policies based on Security Benchmark's guide for Windows Server 2008 R2 to lock down the servers in our environment.  I removed all the new GPO's in the DC OU and made the Default DC Police Enforced and refreshed the GP on both DC's with no luck.

    Also make sure you refresh the GPOs on the client using gpupdate /force. A reboot never hurts either.

    Tried both, no joy.

    Turns out that the user was a member of builtin\guests.  Since the Group Policy denied access to Guests it would not allow him to access the DC to change his password.  Once he was removed everything worked fine.
