This security setting determines which users are allowed to shut down a computer from a remote location on the network. Misuse of this user right can result in a denial of service.
This user right is defined in the Default Domain Controller Group Policy object (GPO) and in the local security policy of workstations and servers.
On workstations and servers: Administrators.
On domain controllers: Administrators, Server Operators.
Restrict the Force shutdown from a remote system user right to members of the Administrators group or other specifically assigned roles that require this capability (such as non-administrative operations center staff).
If you remove the Force shutdown from a remote system user right from the Server Operator group you could limit the abilities of users who are assigned to specific administrative roles in your environment. You should confirm that delegated activities will not be adversely affected.
