Remote Desktop does not work on the domain controller
Posted on 2007-04-02
I just installed a new domain controller (the first one in the forest), and still in the phase to setup all OUs, users and GPs. The server is Windows 2003 x64 Standard edition.
Now, for some reason I cannot Terminal Service/Remote Desktop the domain controller (only this machine, the rest of the servers I can access as usual). I am using the Administrator account, and the administrator is listed in the GP that deals with Terminal Service, also the terminal service is enabled. when I try to login using the Administrator username and password it gives me the following error message:
"To log on 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 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."
I tried everything, I removed all the policies and reinstall them again, trying different users with different groups.... etc
But no luck... Your help is much appreciated....
