Specs: Windows Server 2008 R2
Hello,
I did add a rule via secpol for "Users" -group to not be able to logon locally. Now even administrator can't login to server.
Logon screen gives an error:
"You cannot log on because the logon method you are using is not allowed on this computer".
It's a stand-alone server with no remote login available. Any ideas are much appreciated! Thank You!

Solved it! I used the trick to launch cmd via login screen (found a link on this forum, great trick indeed) and after that I was able to update secpol and force gpupdate.

Ah, yeah.. when a change is made to GPO's (group policy objects), its usually best to run the gpupdate, its like an icing on the cake kinda thing. The new GPO's will then be enforced to the end users the next time they reboot.

Good job!

What is that trick to opening up cmd in the logon screen? I searched the forum but couldn't find the page you were referring to.
