Two servers – one is the domain controller and doesn’t do much but act as the DC, serve files and run the backup app. The other is a member server and houses the database app that the company uses. Both are Server 2003 Standard. For remote access, I RDP into the domain controller. The company only has one public IP address and this wasn’t a big deal until we installed the database server a few weeks ago. Now, though, I need to look at the database server from time to time and I’d simply like to use RDP to look at the database server from the domain controller but I get this message:
**To log on to this remote computer, you must be granted the Allow log on throught Terminal Services right. By default, members of the Remote Desktop Users group have this right. If you are not a member of the Remote Desktop Users group, or another group that has this right, or if the Remote Desktop User group does not have this right, you must be granted this right manually.**
The logon I use for RDP has domain admin rights AND is a member of the Remote Desktop Users group. For fun, I tried it with the Administrator account (and, even thought I knew it was, I ensured that Administrator was in the Remote Desktop Users group) – no dice. I tried some other solutions – involving editing the group policy – given by the Windows Help – no dice. Looked up the error message on the Web and got a couple of solutions – no dice.
Does anyone have suggestions about how to approach this?
