I have tried to remove the shutdown on a windows 2003 terminal server by using the following procedure but I can't gain access to the group list:
Local Computer Policy
User Rights Assignment
Shutdown the System
(remove unwanted groups/users from the list)
I had to go to Administrative ToolsLocal Security PolicyUser Rights Assignment
And performed the task that way. it worked but anyone know why it did not using the .msc? I also see that the shutdown button is not removed from the user logon but when trying to shutdown with a user that did not have rights i only got logoff or disconnect. It seems to work but I want to find out why it did not the way Microsoft stated to go about it in their KB Article. Sorry for the long post.
