User rights assignment: SeServiceLogonRight via powershell -command ...?

User rights assignment: SeServiceLogonRight via powershell -command ...?

I have a task that I need to perform on a regular basis, as follows:
  1. Create a user (c/w password, no expiry)
  2. Grant that user the logon as service right
In all cases I'm doing this on clean/virgin, air-gapped MS operating systems running on virtual machines. The OSes include:
  • Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit)
  • Windows 10
  • Windows Server 2008 (R1 & R2, 32 & 64 bit)
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2016
and each may have one or more service packs installed.

The first of these steps I can do with one line at a command prompt (or batch file) using net user UserName P@ssw0rd /add and I was hoping I could do something similar with the second step using either "powershell -command {...}" or "secedit -args". NOTE: I do NOT want to use ntrights.exe or any powershell script library (carbon, chocolaty). Ideally, I'd have both steps in a single, simple batch file that I just drop into the VM and run, no need for any additional executables or script libraries.

Is this even possible?
