Hi!

Check Default Domain Controllers Policy, Allow logon through Terminal Services right at Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / User Rights Assignment. Which groups or user accounts are defined in this policy?

On the console of the PDC login as Admin
Start > run > type "tscc.msc" Hit ok
Click on the Connections in the left panel.
Double-click the RDP-Tcp (or Right-click and Select Properties)
Select the Permissions Tab
Add yourself to that list. and grant yourself the proper permissions.

Hi Toni.  I am allowed in that policy as well.  Strangely,, I CAN remote into the 2nd DC but not the primary.
