I have Windows 2K print server.  I am running Terminal Services on it in Admin mode.

I want to make seveal IS staff "Power Users" on this server, and grant them permission to "login locally" using TS to manage print queues.

This server is a member of an NT4 domain.  How do I grant that "login locally" permission to the local "Power Users" group?

When W2K terminal services are in admin mode noone except members of Administrators group could login through RDP connection. To allow users with restricted rights to use server it needs to be in Application mode.

In the start menu, under Administration, start "Local Security Policy" (or start "secpol.msc" form the run menu or a command window). In the left pane, go to "Local Policies\User Permissions"; in the right pane, you'll find the permissions similar to NT4.

To allow Power Users (or better a dedicated security group) access to your server through an RDP session, have a look at this article:
