Remote Desktop access not allowed

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
When I try to log on to a win 2003 Server via remote desktop it gives the following Logon Message:
TO log on to this remote computer, you must be granted the Allow log on through Terminal Services Right. By default members of the Remote Desktop Users group have this right. If you are not a member of this group you must be granted this right manually.

I can logon with my own username and pasword fine but I am member of Domain admins. When you try and log on with another standard user then it gives this message above. I did add the user to the local admin group on the server as well as the Remote Desktop users group but it still does not allow me in with that user.

PLease assist me urgently.
