Applying local group membership changes

By DotNetGeek ·

I am trying to change a local user's group memberships on a production server running Windows 2008 Server. This I am able to do. However, when changing the membership, a message indicates that the user must log in to the server for the changes to take effect. Unfortunately, this user does not have access to remote desktop into the server, and as it is a production server it would probably not be a good idea to enable this access.

Is there any way I can apply local group membership changes without the user needing to log in afterwards?

Thanks in advance.

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". .
