UAC - Prompt When Attempting to Shutdown/restart Windows 10 Machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    Working on a headscratcher issue here. New build of Windows 10 (1803, 17134.137) and everything went relatively well until I add the computer to my domain. After being added to the domain, the computer requires an administrative log-in BEFORE allowing me to shut-down or restart the computer. I've checked the GPO and 'shutdown' is allowed for everyone, so I'm not seeing where the issue is. The pop up in UAC just states its 'Settings' requesting my permission to continue, and the object refers to a 'C:/windows/system32/systemsettinsadminflows.exe'. So it appears as though Windows 10 believes it needs to make a change in settings, rather than just shutting down? I've been at this for days, and without fail when I pull it out of the domain everything functions proper. After it is joined to the domain this issue crops up, obviously that means that there is some kind of group policy or security policy causing this issue, but I'm at a total loss for which setting would make the computer believe that shutdown/restart = administrator only. Also, I've logged in as a local admin after domain access and the same issue happens, so its not a domain admin issue, its just a domain issue. Any ideas for what I can try?
