2k3 remote login privlidges

Prior to switching over to Active directory I was able to add users to the "remote desktop users" group and that would allow them to remotly login into the machine (as the name implies).  

I switched over to AD and users that were previously able to login remotely still can, but when I create a new user and add them to that group it will not allow them to login, they get the error "the local policy does not allow you to login interactivly".

If I add users to the administrators group they CAN login remotly, but clearly I do not want users as admins.

Any help would be appreciated.

You need to change the local user rights policy on the workstation

start- run- gpedit.msc

Computer Config- Windows Settings- Security Settings- local policies- user rights- log on locally (add the group you want to give them this right)

Follow up: There is also a group called "local Remote Login Users", I try adding users to that group also but users are still unable to login.  Presently the test user I have is a member of:
-Domain Users
-Local Remote Login Users
-Remote Desktop Users

I realize that the best solution may be editing the group policy but I have never done and that if that is the case detailed instructions would really be appreciated.

smile, thank you much.  In the group policy under:
Computer Configuration -> windows settings -> security settings -> local policies -> user rights assignment -> allow logon through terminal services.

The only group listed in their was administrators, I added remote desktop users and I was good to go!
