Hyper V Permissions

Hyper-V – Error:
(0×80070569: Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.)

This error threw me for a while. It seems this doesn't come up until the Windows 2012 server is joined to a domain. I was not having this problem while the server was running in stand alone mode.

I was running as an admin, but it didn't seem to matter what account was used. 
To fix:
  1. From Command Line, run gpedit.msc
  2. Locate Local Policy, User Rights Assignment, Log on as a Batch Job
  3. Add the local administrator to the Log on as a Batch Job
  4. Close Local Policy and from command line, run gpupdate /force
