means exactly that, you do not have the permissions, your user must be part of the RDP group on the server youa re trying to remote too

a good TS troubleshooting site to work with

you need to add the user to the RDP group as well and check the local policy under user rights assignment and make sure you are allowed to logon locally

you need to check your local security policy under user rights assignment...you will not be able to access if there are any deny policies or explicit allow policies are incorrectly configured

Thanks mate!

coastman14,

look under the user rights assignment - allow logon through terminal services, add your RDP group if its not already enabled

that message says it all....you have to be a member of the local RDP group on each server you try to remote too. If you are, then you need to confirm in the local policy that the RDP group has been granted logon rights

So what specific changes do i make on the server or the client to get the clients to be able to login
here is screen shot from inside of server
http://www.creativesale.com/ee/RDP_2.gif

I have a server called Catherine in it windows 2003...(this is server I am attempting to login to)
I have a server called Kielly it is running Windows 2003... I can currently login to Catherine through remote desktops with administrator password...
I have a client named Brazoria, it is a laptop running windows xp pro, it gives me the failure message when I attempt to login with administrator password through mmc terminal services.
I have a client named Bailey, it is a desktop running windows xp pro,  it gives me the failure message when I attempt to login with administrator password through mmc terminal services.


I need to know exactly what to do to get Brazoria and Bailey to login to Catherine

that image you have sent is simply the RDP TCP properties and not the local policy of the machine - two different things

you need to run gpedit.msc   scroll through the first link i sent you and confirm the policy settings are correct

the question is which setting to change... i have been through the article no less than 6 times...it still isn't working, i have made no custom configuration changes to the windows 2003 server...

here is local security setting the article says to look at user rights assignment which is done...

look at the setting you are playing with - you are paying with the allow logon locally - haave to change the "allow logon through terminal services"
