PowerShell Script to Add Account to “Allow Logon Locally” privilege on Local Security Policy


As you know the SharePoint Farm Account must have privileges to logon locally for getting “User Profile Service Application” to work.

Today I created a PowerShell script that adds the given account to the “Allog Logon Locally” privilege in the Local Security Policy.

1. My account is “DOMAIN\sp_farm”

2. I start “secpol.msc” (“Local Security Policy”) on the local farm server

3. I’m looking for “Allow Logon Locally”. The account “sp_farm” is not in this setting.

4. I execute the script to add the account.

5. Then I reload the “Local Security Policy” or close and reopen the MMC.
