Remote Login and Local Policy


I am trying to set up an account on a w2k server that allows for the user to terminal service into the server.

The error message i am gettting is
the local policy of the system does not allow you to log in interactively

What is going wrong?

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?
