"Allow logon locally" - User Rights Assignment - applied, but not taking effect

Posted on 2014-11-12

Hi,

I've recently set a new GPO to restrict the 'Allow logon locally' to Administrators, Power Users and Backup Operators.

Resultant Set of Policy shows this policy applies without a problem:

Yet when I launch gpedit.msc on the machine, it shows the following:

The policy seems to be applying, but not taking effect. The settings above are locked and I cannot manually modify them.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Restarting the computer, running gpupdate /force, setting the GPO as 'Enforced' does nothing. Surely this setting should be overridden by the policy I have set?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Adrian

If you would like to know which policy applied to client machine in domain environment, you should run rsop.msc in RUN

Not gpedit.msc

Gpedit.msc is for Local machine group policy.

Hi,

I've just gone back to this and the policy has now applied.

I'd already ran a gpupdate /force and restarted twice - is there any reason why this policy has only taken effect now?

Thanks,
Adrian

If you have ran Gpupdate it should be updated in next restart.

If it is not, you need to check in your server event viewer if there is anything related to GPO
