The local policy of the system does not allow you to logon interactively

Hi,

OK we have a remote server and attached to the server (win2000) is a number of clients (xp), from this end we have administrator logon and client logon, up until now things have been fine, but suddenly on two of the machines I can't get on if I try to logon as a client or local, I can get in as administrator no problem, but client logon gets me the above message.

I have done the obvious like right mouse click my computer and add the local login to the remote Desktop options and a few of the ideas I found on here but with no joy.

Any ideas why or how I can get on locally?

P.S. I'm not a network guy

Hi trojan_uk,

windows settings\secutiy settings\local policies\user rights assignment\ allow logon through terminal services - make sure you user is in there

kiba34, yes I am

Jay, I did do that as I saw that suggestion on another thread, however when I tried to login I got a message saying something to the effect of "You do not have access to logon to this session"

Thanks jay,

You are going to have to bear with me on this, I'm not a network guy and we are awaiting one to replace the guy that left. What I will do is tell you the procedure I followed.

I logged in remotely from a win 2000 sever to a client XP machine and selected Remote Desktop under System Properties/Remote and then added the user there. I then got the message "The local policy of the system does not allow you to logon interactively" I then followed the procedure you highlighted and got the message "You do not have access to logon to this session"

The other thing is that for the last six or eight months everything has been working fine, but last Friday the clients (12 in all) started to drop their map drives to the server (the server is also situated in the same room as the clients, not the same server I am trying to connect through) and they would have to log off and on again to reconnect.

Anyway that digressing a bit, could you walk me through what I should be changing if I have missed a step out

Many thanks

Jay,

I worked out what I was doing wrong, I was adding the wrong user, I was adding a user for the machine logon not the domain logon, then trying to logon via the domain.

Thanks for the help
