Well, assuming that this is a STANDARD Server 2003 and it is not a Domain Controller, and you haven't configured the Terminal Services role on it... then all you need to do is open the Local User Management Console (START > Run... > lusrmgr.msc).  Expand Groups, and the open Remote Desktop Users and add the user's DOMAIN account to the group as "DOMAIN\UserName".

(Alternatively you can right click on My Computer > Properties > Remote > Select Remote Users... > Add... and then add the user's Domain Account here instead... these both do the same thing, just different ways to get there).

or hit the security policy

start - run - gpedit.msc

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

make sure your user is in there

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Well there are a whole slew of reasons that an event 1030 can occur--- you may want to check out the notes on it here:
http://eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=1030&eventno=1542&source=Userenv&phase=1

Also, one of the reasons I was assuming it wasn't a domain controller is because generally you would NOT want to grant access to non-administrators to a DC because of security concerns.  So, is there a good reason that this person is not an admin, yet still needs access to this server?  (That's not necessarily a question you have to answer here, but rather raise for yourself to think about).

But even if it is a DC, my "second" way should still work.  Otherwise you need to add them to the Domain Controller's Group Policy's settings.
