This article describes how to set logon user rights by using the NTRights utility (Ntrights.exe).
Ntrights.exe is a Resource Kit utility that can be used to set user rights from a command prompt. Ntrights.exe can be used to manipulate the rights on either the local computer or a remote computer. The Help output for Ntrights.exe does not list all the logon rights that can be modified.

The following is a list of logon user rights that can be modified by the NTRights utility:

User RightFriendly Name
SeNetworkLogonRightAccess this computer from the network
SeInteractiveLogonRightLog on locally
SeBatchLogonRightLog on as a batch job
SeServiceLogonRightLog on as a service
SeDenyNetworkLogonRightDeny access this computer from the network
SeDenyInteractiveLogonRightDeny log on locally
SeDenyBatchLogonRightDeny log on as a batch job
SeDenyServiceLogonRightDeny log on as a service

Note: When you use the NTRights utility, the user right is case sensitive.
