How To disable Shutdown Option
In this section below I describe how to disable shutdown option in a workstation, server o domain controller. Normaly you can do it by domain policy, but in this case I explain how to do by local policies.
There are some cases that the server o workstation is not in a domain. If this is your case, this is your solution.
- Open Local Security Settings (secpol.msc).
- Security Settings
- Local Policies
- User Rights Assignment
- Shutdown the System
With Shutdown the System, you can specify who (local users o groups) CAN shutdown the system.
By default the values are:
- Workstation: Administrators, Backup Operators, Power Users, Users
- Servers: Administrators, Backup Operators, Power Users
- Domain Controllers: Account Operators, Administrators, Backup Operators, Server Operators
I hope that this will be useful to someone.
