I have a 2 server system running. Maschine A is the DC and Maschine B will be used just as Fileserver. During setup everything was configured as a workgroup and later on I set up the DC and moved Maschien B onto the Domain. On Both Maschines the Terminal Services were installed and running. After Reboot of Maschine A all worked fine but Maschine B came up with a message that the terminal service licenz service could not start up. I didn´t mind that error as I was expecting to fix it later on but today I had to restart both maschines as new dirvers were installed and now Maschine B declines all login request by any admin (local or domain) the message tells me interactive login forbitten by local security settings. Is there any workaround so I could login with admin rights and try to fix the local login settings?

If B is still a member of the domain configure Group Policy (on the DC) to overide any local policy so that defined users (administators) are granted interactive logon on B.

Try booting up machine "B" with "Last Known Good Config" if you haven't logged in since the problem occured. Worth a try.

Do you mean that you can't logon to the DC either?

No, sorry if I gave you the wrong impression. I can´t login on maschine "B" using the domain admin account.

Ok, so you need to logon to machine 'A' (the DC) with your Domain Admins account and configure Group Policy (Restricted Groups) so that when that policy is applied to machine 'B' (every 90 minutes by default or after a re-boot) the local\administrators group on machine 'B' has the Domains Admin group as a member. Then you'll be able to logon to machine 'B' with any Domain Admins account.
