HOWTO: Set Logon as a Service Dynamically via GPO

I recently ran into a situation where a client has a group per server for Administrators, Remote Desktop Users, and hopefully, Service Accounts.  This may or may not be the best way of dealing with this, but it does solve a need by moving user access to AD vs configuration on local servers.  It’s a little easier to centralize and manage by administrators that may have access to AD but not the servers themselves (eg: HelpDesk users).  The problem, as indicated below, is that setting the rights for the service account/groups has been getting done manually to the systems as they are built or needed.  This has resulted in inconsistencies, as one might expect.  So I found a way to standardize and bring it all “back up to code”, as it were. 1,153 more words
