Can you please check your group policy (gpedit.msc) under User
Configuration->Administrative Templates->Start Menu and Taskbar "Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down Command" is enabled?
If your machine is joined to a domain, you may also need to check from your
domain controller "Active Directory Users and Computers"

I want to enable the "Shutdown" button on my domain controllers (don't ask
why) to a number of administrators who are not in the domain admins group.
The will connect to the server using Terminal Sevices.
I have altered the Domain Controller GPO with the following settings:
Computer configuration\Windows Settings\Local Policies\Security
Option\Shutdown: Allow system to be shut down without having to log on =
Computer configuration\Windows Settings\Local Policies\User Rights
Assigment\Shut down the system = Here I added the user accounts in question.
The problem is that these settings only enables the "Shutdown" button for
the console (however not if you connect with TS /Console) but not for a
Terminal Server Session.
I also tried to edit the registry by changing the following value to "1":
That didn't help either.
