Microsoft Surface Studio PC release date, pricing, design, features and spec: Microsoft showcases…
On coming in to work this morning, it have tried to log on to the server but I gave me the following message: Window cannot log you on Interactively.
In effect I cannot get in to the server. I am the only Administrator that has full access to the server. All other user names and password get the same result, i.e. Account operator etc.
Anybody got any ideas as to how I can gain access?
You know about win2k servers more than most of us (certainly me), but just in case you're too busy to search for solutions, here are a few links:
MS article click here
What may be a similar problem on another forum click here
And JSI Tips click here
No idea what they're talking about, but ntrights.exe gets a few mentions.
Thanks for your kind comments temp003, I will follow up on your links.
One of your links temp003 gave the following: "Deny logon locally for the domain controller, and added some perceding groups that the administrator is member of it by default"
Made me think of the permissions I had set for a new Group/OU. I have set the logon locally to deny (the group is for under 16 year olds). As you can see from the above the Administrator is by default a member of this group. So I have denied myself local logon rights.
Unfortunately, being a charity without enough funds we do not have a seperate Domain Controller as back up.
I am going to try a few other things to see if I can get in to the server first before I decide to do a back up.
Thanks again temp003 for your help.
It did not recognise or allow access due to the user or passwordI suspect or mybe could not connect to a server to verify.
Never had this problem,
Do you have Roaming Profiles?
I do but as I say cannot help you much because I never had this prob.
Sorry, and Hope you get it sorted.
Thanks Gaz 25, I do have Roaming Profiles configured. Roaming Profiles are default with the Administrator account.
I have tried doing a Restore (via the F8 option) but because I require to log on to the server I cannot do this either.
Have also installed Adminpac.msi on a workstation to see if I can gain access that way, still nothing.
I am awaiting a response from an(MCSA)Administrator to see if he can come around today to help sort the problem out.
Will post back the resolution, just in case you need it some day.
Just had a visit from the Administrator I mentioned. He looked over the system, looked through the registry and unfortunately could not find what is wrong. He tried a couple of other things as well to connect to the server but failed.
His recommendation is to do a clean install and then restore the server with the back up tape.
As like you Gaz 25 he has never had this problem.
temp003,the link from JSI Tips was very informative. Just wish I had the supplement disc with the Ntrights.exe on it.
Thanks again for your responses.
Post back if you have not yet restored the server.
The logon locally is a right, not a permission so theres always a work around. You could try.. administrative tools, right
click Computer Management, select Runas.
There are other ways, editing the odd file or deleting sams..
Early start in the morn so pulling the plug.
