Why all of a sudden are my users unable to remotely connect to servers? Getting all sorts of error messages.
Posted on 2004-04-07
I've got Terminal Server (not licensed yet) running on 1 server out of 2 in my AD domain. This server is used primarily for VPN services and has been up and running for a good 20 or so days no problems.
I got an email from a user saying he can't login now and is getting 'The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively'. Funny, I can connect via VPN fine and remote to my other server machine fine, but whenever I try to connect to the VPN server either directly or from my other machines via Remote Desktop, I get similar messages. 'Do not have privelages to access...' 'no permissions...' yadda, yadda, yadda. I'm the Domain Admin, so how don't I have permissions to access this machine? Furthermore, I have not done anything to it to at all to possibly cause these messages. I've yet to physically go to the office to logon, but I should be able to access this machine somehow remotely am I wrong? This VPN server is also my BDC so I've checked my accounts via my PDC to make sure all the users have access and they do.
What needs to be done for my users to get back into the Remote Desktop game?
