How to grant users rights to manage services

  • 3 contributors

This article describes how to grant users the authority to manage system services in Windows Server.

By default, only members of the Administrators group can start, stop, pause, resume, or restart a service. This article describes methods that you can use to grant the appropriate rights to users to manage services.

Applies to:   Supported versions of Windows Server Original KB number:   325349

Method 1: Use Group Policy

You can use Group Policy to change permissions on system services. See How To Configure Group Policies to Set Security for System Services for more information.

Method 2: Use Security Templates

To use security templates to change permissions on system services, create a security template following these steps:

  • Select Start , search mmc and select it.
  • On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in .
  • Select Security Configuration and Analysis , select Add , and then select OK .
  • In the console tree, right-click Security Configuration and Analysis , and then select Open Database .
  • Specify a name and location for the database, and then click Open .
  • In the Import Template dialog box that appears, click the security template that you want to import, and then click Open .
  • In the console tree, right-click Security Configuration and Analysis , and then click Analyze Computer Now .
  • In the Perform Analysis dialog box that appears, accept the default path for the log file that is displayed in the Error log file path box or specify the location that you want, and then click OK .

After the analysis is complete, configure the service permissions as follows:

  • In the console tree, select System Services .
  • In the right pane, double-click the service whose permissions you want to change.
  • Select the Define this policy in the database check box, and then select Edit Security .
  • To configure permissions for a new user or group, select Add . In the Select Users, Computers, or Groups dialog box, type the name of the user or group that you want to set permissions for, and then select OK .
  • In the Permissions for User or Group list, configure the permissions that you want for the user or group. When you add a new user or group, the Allow check box next to the Start, stop and pause permission is selected by default. This setting permits the user or group to start, stop, and pause the service.
  • Select OK two times.

To apply the new security settings to the local computer, right-click Security Configuration and Analysis , and then click Configure Computer Now .

You can use also the Secedit command-line tool to configure and analyze system security. For more information about Secedit, see secedit commands . Note that when you use this method to apply settings, all the settings in the template are reapplied, and this may override other previously configured file, registry, or service permissions.

  Windows OS Hub / Windows 10 / Allow or Prevent Non-Admin Users from Reboot/Shutdown Windows

Allow or Prevent Non-Admin Users from Reboot/Shutdown Windows

How to allow or prevent shutdown/reboot options in windows via gpo, allow remote shutdown/restart without admin permissions, disable (hide) shutdown or restart options from windows, how to find out who restarted/shutdown a windows server.

You can set the permissions to restart or shutdown Windows using the Shut down the system parameter in the GPO section Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment. This GPO option allows you to specify which locally logged-on users can shut down an operating system.

Please note that the default restart/shutdown permissions for desktop versions of Windows 10/11 and Windows Server editions are different.

Open the Local Group Policy Editor ( gpedit.msc ) and navigate to the section specified above. As you can see, the members of local groups Administrators , Users and Backup Operators have the permission to shutdown/reboot a computer running Windows 10 or 11 .

Shut down the system - allow user to shutdown/restart windows via gpo

On Windows Server 2022/2019/2016 , only Administrators or Backup Operators can shut down or restart the server. It is reasonable, since in most cases a non-admin user must not have the privileges to shutdown a server (even accidentally). Just imagine an RDS farm host that is often shuts down since users accidentally click on the “Shutdown” button in the Start menu…

On Active Directory domain controllers, the rights to shut down Windows are delegated to:

  • Administrators
  • Backup Operators
  • Server Operators
  • Print Operators

If the user does not have permission to restart/shutdown the operating system, then an error will appear when running the following command:

shutdown –r –t 0

shutdown command - access is denied 5

You can manually grant permissions to shut down the computer locally using the legacy ntrights tool from the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit:

ntrights +r SeShutdownPrivilege -u woshub\j.smith

To prevent a user from shutting down or restarting Windows:

ntrights -r SeShutdownPrivilege -u woshub\j.smith

Or, vice versa, you can prevent users of workstations running the desktop Windows 10/11 edition from restarting the computer that performs some kind of server function. In this case, just remove Users group from the local policy Shut down the system .

In the same way, you can prevent (or allow) shutdown/reboot operations for non-admin users on all computers in a specific Organizational Unit (OU) of an Active Directory domain using a domain GPO.

  • Create the grpAllowRestartComputers user group in AD, to whom you want to grant the permissions to restart computers. You can create a new group using the ADUC snap-in ( dsa.msc ) or the New-ADGroup PowerShell cmdlet.  Add users to the group;

create new gpo

  • Set the GPO name ( gpoAllowReboot ) and edit it;
  • Navigate to Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> User Rights Assignment;

gpo: allow shutdown windows for non administrator users

  • Update the GPO settings on the target computers and check the resulting GPO settings with the rsop.msc snap-in. Users in your group can now shut down or reboot this host;

allow restart and shut down windows for non-admin in start menu

To do it, add a user account to the Force shutdown from a remote system Group Policy option in the same GPO section ( User Rights Assignment ).

By default, only administrators can shutdown/restart the server remotely. Add a user account to the policy.

gpo to allow remote windows restart: Force shutdown from a remote system

ntrights +r SeRemoteShutdownPrivilege -u woshub\j.smith

After that, the user will get the SeRemoteShutdown privilege and will be able to restart the server remotely using the command:

Or using the Restart-Computer PowerShell cmdlet:

Restart-Computer –ComputerName hamb-rds01 –Force

If WinRM (Windows Remote Management) is enabled on the remote computer, you can use WSman instead of WMI to connect:

Restart-Computer -ComputerName hamb-rds01 -Protocol WSMan

If the user does not have permission to connect to the WMI namespace, an error will appear:

You can use Group Policy to hide the Shutdown, Restart, Sleep and Hibernate options from the sign-in screen and Start Menu. This GPO option is called Remove and Prevent Access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate commands and is located under User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Start Menu and Taskbar

Group Policy: Remove and Prevent Access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate commands - remove Options in Windows 10 Start Menu

After you enable this policy, a user will be able only to disconnect the current session or use the logoff command. The Shutdown, Sleep and Restart buttons will become unavailable.

start menu

You can use some registry tweaks to hide only a specific item from the Power/Shutdown menu in Windows. For example, you want to hide only the “Shut down” option in the Start menu, but keep “Restart”.

  • Open the Registry Editor ( regedit.exe );
  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Start\HideShutDown ;

set HideShutDown via registry

REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Start\HideShutDown" /v "value" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Or using PowerShell:

Set-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Start\HideShutDown" -Name "value" -Value 1

Also, you can hide other options in the Start Menu and Windows sign-in screen:

  • Hide only thr Restart option in Windows: REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Start\HideRestart " /v "value" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
  • Hide Hibernate option from Start Menu in Windows: R EG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Start\HideHibernate" /v "value" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
  • Hide Sleep from the Start Menu: REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Start\HideSleep" /v "value" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
  • To completely disable the Power button and remove the “Shut down or sign out” option from WinX menu: REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Start\HidePowerButton" /v "value" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Please note that in Windows Server 2019/2022, after assigning restart permission to a user, an error may appear:

You don’t have permission to shutdown or restart this computer.

In this case, you need to enable the UAC parameter “User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode” in the GPO:

If you have granted permission to reboot a computer for a non-admin user, you may want to know who restarted a Windows Server : a user or one of the administrators.

Use the Event Viewer ( eventvwr.msc ) to search for shutdown logs in Windows. Go to Windows Logs -> System and filter the current log by the Event ID 1074 .

filte events by 1074 restart event id

As you can see, there are server restart events in the log in chronological order. The event description includes the restart time, the reason, and the user account that restarted the host.

EventID: 1074 The process C:\Windows\system32\shutdown.exe has initiated the restart of computer on behalf of user for the following reason: Reason Code: 0x800000ff Shutdown Type: restart

You can get information about recent Windows shutdown events using the same Event ID 1076 :

Use the following simple PowerShell script to list the last ten computer restart and shutdown events. This list contains the names of the users and processes from which the reboot was initiated.

Get-EventLog -LogName System | where {$_.EventId -eq 1074} |select-object -first 10 | ForEach-Object { $rv = New-Object PSObject | Select-Object Date, User, Action, process, Reason, ReasonCode if ($_.ReplacementStrings[4]) { $rv.Date = $_.TimeGenerated $rv.User = $_.ReplacementStrings[6] $rv.Process = $_.ReplacementStrings[0] $rv.Action = $_.ReplacementStrings[4] $rv.Reason = $_.ReplacementStrings[2] $rv } } | Select-Object Date, Action, Reason, User, Process |ft

So sad that there’s no option to disable only shutdown. I have a need to allow user to restart their machines but not shutdown.

FYI you can hide shutdown from the start menu using HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Start\HideShutDown

Thanks, but even so an advanced user would know to turn it off using other ways.

Thank you MT.. this helped..

' src=

On Windows 11, this did work, however, a user who is blocked from restarting/shutting down in this way, can still press Control-Alt-Delete and has the restart/shutdown option in the lower right hand corner. Is there a way to remove that, too?

I just actually tried it from a “non-privileged” account. The good news is that although the options appear, they don’t actually work. 🙃

Learn how to elevate permissions to local administrator

Reisbel Machado avatar

There are cases when you'll need to grant temporary admin rights to an end user. For example, to install an app update or have access to Task manager. 

To grant local admin rights, connect to the session host server (fbu) with your admin credentials. If you have more than 1 session host server (uss), you'd need to make the change in all of them. Right click on Start – Computer Management . 

user rights assignment windows server 2019

Select Local users and Groups, then Groups.

user rights assignment windows server 2019

Double click Administrators – Add – add a whole security group (i.e. “all users”) or just an individual ​

user rights assignment windows server 2019

After finding the user (group) click OK and then click Apply.

You can remove the admin rights when you highlight the user /group you want to remove and click Remove button. It's not recommended to keep the admin rights for end users since they can install malware and compromise the environment.

Windows Security Log Event ID 4704

4704: A user right was assigned

On this page

  • Description of this event
  • Field level details
  • Mini-seminars on this event

This event documents a change to user right assignments on this computer including the right and user or group that received the new right. Note: "User rights" and "privileges" are synonymous terms used interchangeably in Windows. Rights, like most other security settings, are defined in group policy objects and applied by the computer. Therefore this event will normally show the Assigned By user as the system itself. To determine who actually made the rights assignment change you must search the domain controllers' security logs for changes to groupPolicyContainer objects (logged by Directory Service auditing). Logon ID allows you to link this event to the prior event  4624  logon event of the user who performed this action. Note: This event, 4704, and 4705 do not log changes to logon rights such as "Access this computer from the network" or "Logon as a service". See events 4717 and 4718 .

Can't edit Local Security Policy

I'm trying to add users to the Access this computer from the network User Rights Assignment policy but the 'Add' button is disabled:

enter image description here

I'm connecting to the machine via RDP using the local Administrator account (not a domain user). I've also tried to do the same with a domain user that is in the Administrators group but the result is the same.

How can I add a user to this policy?

The machine is running Windows 7.

  • You need to be using a domain user in the Administrator user group –  Ramhound Aug 27, 2015 at 12:38
  • I am using it (the built-in account..), but I login via RDP. does it matter? –  etaiso Aug 27, 2015 at 12:38
  • Your not using one, you indicated your using the local Administrator account, you need to be using a user connected to the domain with Administrator permissions. –  Ramhound Aug 27, 2015 at 12:44
  • I also tried that . it's the same –  etaiso Aug 27, 2015 at 12:46
  • Update your question; If I had know that; I could have saved time responding. –  Ramhound Aug 27, 2015 at 12:51

You cannot edit this User Rights Assignment policy because this setting is being managed by a domain-based Group Policy. In this case, the domain Group Policy setting has precedence and you are prevented from modifying the policy via Local Group Policy.

To modify this policy, either:

  • Modify the policy in the applicable domain Group Policy Object.
  • Prevent any domain-based GPOs from specifying this setting, then edit the computer's Local Group Policy.
  • where can I find this policy in the GPO? –  marijnr Jun 13, 2018 at 13:15
