Hi All,

Can anyone here please let me know what sort of AD permission or Group Policy settings that I need to know to properly create AD Service Account with the following requirements:

1. Login as limited user account.
2. Able to start and stop windows service.
3. able to run the application at the background.
4. Running Scheduled task on WIndows Server 2008 R2

Ideally the rule is set at the GPO for all of the servers that in my domain, but I'm not sure where to apply the GPO from ?
Do I edit the GPO for Default Domain... or I need to create one and configure something else ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
