    I´m trying to enable in wind2008 x64 Std SP2, the old feature, Allow Shutdown
    Without Logon, but it doesn´t work

    It´s a limitation in Win2008? the New GUI does not permit it?

    Computer config -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local
    Policies -> Security Options -> Shutdown: Allow system to be shut down
    without having to log on.

    Pulled from a standard install, not joined to any domain, nor a DC itself.

    A domain computer may have altered settings.

    You might need to hit "Switch User" before the shut down button appears.

    I´ve used Local policy and DCs policy in AD and even after "rebooting" the
    shutdown button does not appear.

    So i discovered the problems:

    1) The test to see the button was made via TS


    2) The button only appear AFTER the CTRL+ALT+DEL and after showing the
    warning message (the ctrl+alt+del message)


    3) The screen is being viewed with a DRAC/ILO adapter with the right side of
    the screen out of the monitor...

    now i´m sure it really works!
