Terminal Server Logon Issue

I just bought a new server with Windows 2003 server on it.  I gave it the Terminal Server role.  After setting it up, I'm able to logon as Administrator, but I cannot log on as any users.  I checked the Terminal Services tab and the deny user to logon is cleared.  Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Hi NESupply,

make sure your users are part of the remote desktop users group

on the local policy of the server check the  computer config - windows settings - security settings - local policy - user rights assignment

make sure the remote desktop users group is added to the   allow logon through terminal services

in your actual rdptcp settings in the terminal services configuration util make sure you have added that group also

I'm pretty new to Terminal Services, so please bear with me.

Remote desktop users - the AD one or local one?

Local policy has our terminal servers user group and remote desktop in the allow logon through terminal services.

Where do I find the rdptcp settings?

the AD group if you are logging in with domain users :)

are you users members of that group?

admin tools - remote desktop config - check under the permissions tab for your remote desktop users group

I added my AD terminal server users group to the server's local Remote Desktop group and it let me in with a regular user account.  I looked at my other terminal servers and they aren't setup like that.  Could it be because they other two are in a cluster?  I plan to add this third server to the cluster, but am doing some testing with a telnet application before adding it.
