    Accepted Solution

    you will need to edit the default domain controller policy

    computer settings - windows settings - security settings - local policies - user rights assignment - allow logon through terminal services

    Assisted Solution

    Did you just install TS in administrator mode?  If so the user will need to be a member of the admin group.

    Also go to Terminal Services configuration.  Go to the RDC-TD (Forget exacly what its called but its sumthing along those lines) and right click it and selectt properties.  On the security tab add the users or groups you want to be able to access the machine.
