Domain Controllers: Accounts: Deny log on locally user right must be configured to prevent access from highly privileged domain accounts


Inappropriate granting of user rights can provide system, administrative, and other high-level capabilities. The "Deny log on locally" user right defines accounts that are prevented from logging on interactively. The Guests group must be assigned this right to prevent unauthenticated access.

This Validation Script is intended for Domain Controllers Only. For Domain Joined machines (Desktop/Server) and Stand-Alone machines (Desktop/Servers) there is a separate Validation Script


To fix this configure the policy value for:
Computer Configuration
|_ Windows Settings
|_ Security Settings
|_ Local Policies
|_ User Rights Assignment
|_ "Deny log on locally" to include the following:

  • Guests Group

(Remember to search in the local computer instead of domain groups)
