I have a weird trouble with my 2 terminal servers.  When i'm in the terminal service manager, i see the other terminalserver, but when i click on it, it just said: "You could not be autenticated to this server".   Note that those 2 servers are domain controlers!!

When you install Terminal Services (In application mode) on a DC (which Microsoft does not recommend) then you must do the following to successfully authenitcate:
Under Administrative Tools
Open Terminal Services Configuration
On the right pane, right-click on RDP-TCP and click Properties
Click on the Permissions tab
Add the users which you want to authenticate, or the user group(s)
Make sure to give the user at least User Access and Guest Access
Try to log in with a user which you just added. You should be able to successfully authenticate.

The administrators group is in full control mode (in RDP-TCP, permission tab)...
and i am with administrator to test this.

I tries to remove right, apply, give back right, apply.   To test it the microsoft way!  ;-P

no more access...

It look like that AD missing something...                

ok i looked at the AD structure
hooo i can see that an old server in my AD
so i tried the : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216498

work fine ...   until i started      adsiedit.msc  

it said:  "Snap-in failed to initialize."
            "Name:<unknown>"
            "CLSID:{1C5DACFA-16BA-11D2-81D0-0000F87A7AA3}"

Youhouuu

Maybe it related,        what can i do next?

I think I was having you try something that is unrelated to your problem. Can you explain your problem again, with a little more detail, and explain what you are trying to accomplish?

I am just wondering why, in my terminal service manager, i cannot develop the other RDC.  

It said: "You could not be autenticated to this server"

Those a 2 domain controler of the same domain....  (i know (now, thanks to you) that microsoft don't recommend that, i will change it sooner or later).

On the server you recieve the message, "Cannot Authenticate" on, point the primary DNS server on that box to the IP address of the other Terminal Server which you are trying to access. If it still fails, reboot.
If it still fails, undo what I just suggested.
