Terminal Services on Windows Server 2003 - Is this all I need to do?
I have a windows 2003 server running Terminal server and it is just in the domain... not a DC. I have another server as the DC. I have the license server running on the windows 2003 server/terminal server and the license software says its activated and registered.
My questions relates to my manual entry of adding the users I wish to grant remote access to. All I did was access the computer management on the terminal server and add the appropriate people from the domain to the group remote desktop users.
I did not go to the DC and modify the local group policy to allow terminal server users to log on locally.
I tested all the logins and everyone can log into the terminal server with no issue. Am I not doing enough... why make that group policy change if you don't need to... I am a little confused as to what benifit that affords me in my current setup.
Or is this to allow users to login if the terminal server is a DC?
