I've two questions, the first one about group policy in Windows Server 2003.

Since that there is no power user group on Server 2003, I was wondering which group has similar permissions to power user ?

My second question is how to schedule shutdown on a computer which is part of the Server 2003 domain from a user account, not administrator .

I'm going to dismiss your first question out of hand - it doesn't really matter what is similar to a general grouping of rights under a previous operating system.

Once you start playing with permissions, you'll see what I mean.

As to your second question - is the user actually logging in to the domain when they log in to windows, or just the local machine which is part of the domain?

It doesn't really matter that much, other than needing to provide alternate credentials at some point if it's a domain user account without shutdown rights.

IF the user has logged on to the domain, and is unable to log on locally, and doesn't have shutdown rights, you'll need to shut down via a method that allows you to provide alternate credentials that *do* have this right.

Here is an example of how to schedule a shutdown:

XP Auto Shutdown

Are you the admin?
Local shutdown isn't defined by default - so someone with domain admin authority specifically removed that right from the lusers in the Domain Security Policy..

If you don't have the authority to change that configuration, it would be irresponsible for me to offer you a "workaround."

Hi,
you can make a user a power user from thier local work station. They will have only user rights on the domain but power user rights on their PC.

Hi Watcher07, what rights do you want to give the user o the domain? You have to be carefull as you don't wan't anyone working on the domain if they have no idea what they are doing. Have youset up 2003 just to test or is this part of your work?
