Applies To: Windows SBS 2008
After you migrate, you should give the built-in Administrators group the right to log on as a batch job.
If you are migrating to Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard, see Give the built-in Administrator group the right to logon as batch job for Windows SBS 2011 Standard migration.
After you migrate an existing Windows SBS 2003 domain to Windows SBS 2008, verify that the built-in Administrators group still has the right to log on as a batch job to the Destination Server. Administrators need this right in order to run an alert on the Destination Server without logging on.
