Enabling logon as service policy in Windows Server 2008 R2

I was configuring the Team Foundation Server 2010, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2010 with SQL Server 2008. I was searching a way to enable the “logon as service” policy to apply TFS Users. Initially it was hard for me to find the way to enable the same and finally figured it out. 🙂

First add the users in your active directory.

after that please follow the steps.

1.    On the Windows Server 2008 domain controller, click Start, type gpmc.msc in the Start Search box, and press Enter to open the Group Policy Management console.

or else you can naviagate to console via administrative tool as below:

2.    In the Group Policy Management console, expand <You Domain>\Domain Controllers, right-click Default Domain Controller Policy, and click Edit.

3.    In the Group Policy Management Editor window, expand Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Right Assignment, and then you will see the security setting log on as a service in the right pane.

4.    Double-click the security setting log on as a service, click Add User or Group tab, click Browse, type domain users in the box, click Check Names, and click OK three times to apply the settings.

5.    On the Windows Server 2008 domain controller, run command gpupdate /force to apply the policy.

You must use the Role Management Tool to install or configure Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.

When you are trying to install Visual Studio 2008 professional edition on a Windows 2008 R2 suddenly you will be prompted to an error saying “You must use the Role Management Tool to install or configure Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.”



In this case what you have to do is, from the Service Manager install the .NET Framework 3.5.1 Feature as Windows 2008 R2 is integrated with .NET Framework 3.5.


so before installing VS 2008 make sure that you are enabling this feature .NET Framework 3.5.1 Features via the Add Features Wizard in Server Manager.
