Windows 2000 Terminal Server and Active Directory login problem

Posted on 2004-10-21
Last Modified: 2010-04-13
I have installed Active Directory on my W2K TServer.

I have setup a user account.

When I login using this account, I get the following message:

"The local policy of this system does not permit you to login interactively"

What am I doing wrong?

    in active directory go to the properties of that user

    then click on the "terminal Services profile" tab

    and make sure the "allow logon to terminal server" is checked.

    also make sure you do not have any local/group policies on that server that are preventing that user to log into that server.

    If you've installed active directory (ie run dcpromo or used configure my server, then you have promoted it to a domain controller. By default domain controllers won't allow domain users to logon. Usually its best to run terminal servers on member servers (ie without AD).

    5000 » Terminal Services Clients cannot connect if Terminal Services is installed on a domain controller?

    Remote desktop connection "The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively"
