Create global objects

AKA: SeCreateGlobalPrivilege, Create global objects

Default assignment: Administrators, SERVICE

A process requires this right in order to create sections and/or symbolic link objects in the directories of Object Manager. This right is required for users running inside a Terminal Services session in order to create an object in the system global name space. This right was apparently added to prevent poorly written applications from creating objects like semaphores and named pipes that conflict with each other in the global name space for the system. 

This right should normally be left at its default settings. If you run into memory or other errors running applications under Terminal Services, this right may be the cause. See

This right first appeared in Windows 2003 and SP4 for Windows 2000.
