I have setup a 2003 Server which was running Terminal Services, I setup Domain Controller recently and now when remote users attempt to login they recieve the error "The local policy of this system does not allow you to log on interactively"  I only have this problem with remote users, any administrative user can log on with out issues.  All users are allowed to log on locally in the ADUC, and I can't pinpoint where the difference is between the two groups aside from one being admin.  Can someone please help direct me to where I can find the difference in the groups as to why the remote users can not log on.

The difference is that administrators are allowed to log on to servers and users aren't by default.
You could edit the default domain policy.
In the console tree, click Security Settings.
To edit an Audit Policy, a User Right Assignment, or Security Options, click Local Policies.
Double-click the User right assignment security setting in the details pane.
Modify the security setting, "log on locally" and then click OK.


good luck

The default domain policy won't help anything in this case; this only affects member servers and workstations.
You need to edit the default *domain* *controller* security policy (among the other management tools) and give the appropriate user group the right to log on locally.

You can also add the users to the Remote Desktop Users group.

Once again, please forgive my ignorance, but once I'm in the default domain controller policy and I click to edit it, how do I set the user group to log on locally.  There are options to change "Software Settings", "Windows settings", and "Administrative Templates" but I see no place to change any other settings.  Also they are already members of the Remote Desktop Users group.  I appreciate the advice.

Thank you very much, unfortunately I'm not versed at all in any server OS and my boss that usually handles all those type things resigned two weeks ago.  I greatly appreciate the help!!
