User Rights Assignments

Although in this section they are called user rights, these authority assignments are more commonly called privileges.

Privileges are computer level actions that you can assign to users or groups. For the sake of maintainability you should only assign privileges to groups not to individual users. Each computer has its own user rights assignments. In particular this means you should be cognizant of rights assignments on member servers which may easily differ from the rights assignments you find on your domain controllers. To centrally control user rights assignments on computers throughout your domain use group policy.
