in gpo, check under user configuration\policies\administrative templates\start menu and taskbar if the options to hide the logoff/restart options are configured

Hi, As per your question regarding no option of restart or shutdown after joining with domain so, if you are login as normal user may be shutdown and restart option disable for your user which you are trying to login, if you are login as admin rights then go to properties of domain -> group policy->edit ->user configuration->admin templete ->start menu and task bar at the right side of that page you will get the option wether it disable or enabled.

Hi, Thanks for you reply... I already follow this step... I had disable this option from GPO - Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate commands... after disable this I had updated GPO by gpupdate/force...after this I also update same from client site as well. But still can not access shudown and restart option in Start menu.. Kindly please let me if there is any other setting I need to do...

Hi, You can go to a DC to run Group Policy Management, go to GP Results, connect to the target computer to see if the policy you just disabled is actually disabled on the target computer. If not, check the reason. Or you can also do a gpresult /r on client to see if the group policy applied or not. Notice: On July 1st we will be making this forum read only. After receiving a lot of feedback from the community, it was decided that this forum is a duplication and therefore redundant of the General Forum. So, until July 1st, we will start asking customers to redirect their questions to the General Forum. On June 11th, CSS engineers will move any new threads to the General Forum. Please post a reply to the announcement thread if you have any feedback on this decision or the process. You can also email
