    is "Log On As A Batch Job" actually required for RIS clients or is this outdated?

    i dont seem to require it on w2k3 server sp 1 to do a RIS install from, why is it mentioned in the 270 what does it actually do with regards to RIS?

    cheers

    I thought only a PXE NIC was needed for the RIS client? Been a while though... :biggrin

    the ms press book for the 270 it says that RIS user requires " Log On As A Batch ", which the administrator also doesn't have by default.

    However, it doesn't seem to make a difference when i try it, which makes me wonder why and i cant seem to find that out.

    Do you supply the administrator credentials when you pick an image after booting the RIS client?

    You can do , however, i have created a RISInstall group with the "Join a computer to domain" delegation, with a dedicated user under it.

    but yes both work regardless of " Log On As A Batch " settings, So i wonder why i have been told by MS's book to set it and that it is required.

    Have you tried it with a domain user account (no delegation) to see if the RIS install fails?

    if you don't have the "Join a computer to domain" delegation it does fail for a user it cant create the computer object. Unless you already have a computer object and the user has the right object permissions.

    (obviously administrator doesn't fail and still works)

    again regardless of " Log On As A Batch " settings

    it may be a windows server 2000 or pre 2003 sp1 thing, but i cant find evidence yet.

    You can add computers to a domain with domain user credentials, I think this is limited to 10 computer objects for some reason.

    Anyways, have you checked the local security policy on the RIS server to see who has "Log on as a batch Job" permissions?

    This link explains it...

    Yes you can join a installed client that way 10 times, but it doesn't work for RIS the same way.

    regarding your link. administrator doesn't have "Log on as a batch Job" by default and yet works and the link has nothing to do with RIS.

    I guess i'll have to ask microsoft

    Aye, the link was about checking the local GPO for "Log on as a batch job" permissions. Perhaps a domain GPO is granting that permission then?

    I could only find references to Windows 2000 for that permission being required tbh. Error in the book perhaps?

    I spoke to one of the other Ms press authors last night (writes some the server books).

    Basically its stated to accommodate the widest number of scenarios, i believe domain admin doesn't require it.

    So if you create a RIS user or group to carry out deployment its good practise even though you may not actually require it for all eventualities.

    That does include 2003
