I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Would that be a DC? Go to Start\Programs\Administration\Local Security Policy, then in the left pane, open Security Policies\Local Policies\User Permissions; in the right pane, you'll find an entry "Allow Local logon" (or similar). Add the user account to this policy. Or are you planning to add more than one user to this?
