Srini- It probably can be closely approximated by use User Rights Assignment security policy under computer config\windows settings\security settings\local policies\user rights assignment. There will probably be some resources that you will not be able to grant access to via GP but in most cases, you should be able to use it.

I'm need of a security group which has similar permissions and privileges granted to Built-in Server operator group in Windows 2003 AD. Basically I don't want to use the built-in group but rather create a new group and grant this group all permissions and privileges granted to built-in Server operators group can this is achievable thru GPO, if so can some one guide me plz if not what are reasons it can't be done. Highly appreciate any inputs on this topic, Many thanks in advance Srini _____ Want to be your own boss?
