I am local admin on a windows server 2003 R2 machine in our domain. This machine was built about 3 years back and I am not sure what privilges I might have. If I use ntrights.exe (from resource kit tools) it is succesful as shown below:
ntrights.exe +r SeServiceLogonRight -u domain\accountname Granting SeServiceLogonRight to domain\accountname ... successful
Recently we have build a new windows server 2008 R2 machine and I am local admin on it. But now the same ntrights.exe fails as below:
ntrights.exe +r SeServiceLogonRight -u domain\accountname Granting SeServiceLogonRight to domain\accountname OpenPolicy: ***Error*** OpenPolicy -1073741790
It seems I am missing some privileges despite being local admin. What privileges do I require so that I can ask our system administrator for helping me to grant those privileges ?
Edit: The problem is solved by changing the UAC settings to Never Notify using the slider from control panel -> user accounts settings. But I think this is not the best way to solve this issue. Other answers still welcome.
