Locked out of RDP, again!
Posted on 2006-10-23
Hello, I’ve lost the ability to connect to my Windows Server 2003R2 administrative terminal server, with any domain admin account.
I get this message when I login in with any of my credentials:
To log on to this remote computer, you must have Terminal Server User access permissions on this computer. By default, members of the Remote Desktop Users group have these permissions. If you are not a member to the Remote Desktop Users group or another group that has these permissions, or it the Remote Desktop User group does not have these permissions, you must be granted these permissions manually.
There is no RDP group, because this is a mixed domain I manually added the domain administrators thru the Terminal Services Configuration.
I checked the default domain controllers GPO and all the administrator groups are in the login rights, it is the only GPO that applies.
I've rebooted twice already.
I had this problem before and it went away, and it was working as far back as last week. Is there something in the registry I can check, or should I just format this troublesome factory preloaded software, and put Windows 2003 back on myself?
