  Windows Server Hacks: Remotely Enable Remote Desktop
Subject:   cannot logon through Terminal Services

I just installed Terminal Services on a W2K3 member server. I am receiving the following error: To log on to this computer, you must be granted the Allow log on through Terminal Services right. By default, members of the Remote Desktop Users group have this right. If you are not a member of the Remote Desktop Users group or another group that has this right, or if the Remote Desktop User group does not have this right, you must be granted this right manually. I have granted a user access to logon on locally and be a member of the local remote desktop users group. Has anyone else has encountered this problem? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

    I was having the same problems and even after allowing permissions in the group policy it didn't work. What finally worked for me was found in the Terminal Services Configuration. There is a connections folder with an RDP-tcp connection in it. Add the permissions here and it should take care of the problem for you.

    By default To be able to login to Terminal Service you need to be a member of "Remote Desktop Users" or the "Administrators" group. If you already are try to check the permissions in the terminal services settings. Open Tscc.msc and open the RDP properties under the connections folder. Add your account or group that you want to give access to RDP. Hope this Helps. puking ina mo...
