Terminal server windows 2000

hi, I have a windows 2000 DC which I had activated terminal service yesterday. I create a user but could not logg in got this message" the local policy does not allow user to logg on interactively".

I tried to look for any setting in the gpo but could not locate it. how can i proceed?

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

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.

I cannot fint what jay_jay pointed to in the GPO of this 2000 server. This is found in my 2003 server I checked. It seems there might be something wrong with the installation. I will keep looking at it, in the tie been any tips will be gratefully welcome. thank y
nothing wrong just 2003 has update templates

make sure that the user is not part of any groups that deny logon
