Hi,

Are you trying to log on to the machine using Remote Desktop Connection, or just on the console..
If you are trying to logon to the console, you will ned to have the "logon locally"  permissions (this is normally only with server versions), so you will need to give yourself this privilige.

If you are trying to connect to a remote machine using Remote Desktop Connection, make sure to place the account you are trying to login with in the "Remote Desktop" users group on the machine ur login into.

Or, just make yourself an admin on that machine and you will automatically get the above permissions...

Article was written for 2000 but it applies in 2003.  There is a Group Policy blocking your access either correctly or incorrectly.   Are you a domain administrator.

I agree with JayJay on this one.
If you are on an XP machine and trying to login to the server, it will most probably be a remote connection.Also, this normally is set in the policy. Option might be that you've configured your GPO to not let domain users login to the machines...

Hi,

So your using Remote Desktop Connection (or Terminal server connection or the mstsc??).
Then actually nothing changed. I guess a lot of answers above are correct then. You will need to add yourself to the remote desktop users on the server (first of all) and make sure you have the "log on locally"  permissions.

You can check and go to the console and try to login with your account. If this fails, you will need to do option 2, else if can login at the  console with your account, you will need option 1.
