One of the terminal servers on our network is not allowing nayone to connect to it. It was in remote admin mode, but now is in application mode. Since the change, that is when we started to have problems.
the error is this:
You do not have access to logon to this session
I have looked at the permission setting in the client config menu in TS config screen. I added myself as allowed to have full control. Also my login is an admin, anyway. This still does not allow me to login through remote desktop.
Then I looked at the group policy object for terminal services - and I enabled the 'allow users to connect remotely using teminal services' But still cannot connect.
On local security settings - I am listed under the user allowed to login through terminal services. But still I cannot logon.
In all of that I saw no explicit denies.
The domain controller is 2000server. This particular terminal server I am having trouble with is 2003 server. On the domain controller I checked domain security policy, security settings, local policies, user right assignment - and it had no denies, but also does not have the selection for allow users to use terminal services.
I also added myself to the local machines group of remote desktop users. To no avail.
What am I missing? Why cannot a user connect to this server via terminal services? Every screen I can find says that I can connect.
I am about to give up and put this thing back to remote admin mode instead of application.
