Logging onto a Domain Controller

We have a AD setup on Windows 2003 Servers. We can only log onto to a DC with a Domain Admin login.
If we try login as a normal user we get the message "The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively"

What can I do to permit the logging in, or are there any system groups that I can add the user to apart from Domain admins to allow them to login?

Thanks

imnajam,

He has a 2003 OS, so step 6 would be gpupdate /force
