Domain User Can't Logon to a Server Via RDP
Posted on 2007-10-11
Terminal Services Permissions Problem:
I have a user who I would like to be able to RDP to certain servers within my infrastructure to enable him to update an application that he looks after. When the user tries to do this, it displays the default message:
"the desktop you are trying to open is currently only available to administrators, contact your systems..."
"to logon to this computer you must have terminal server user access permissions on this computer..."
I have checked GPO, all settings allow this and there are no policies which deny access.
The user is part of the Remote Desktop Users Group on that server. I have checked RDP listener permissions in Terminal Services Config Manager and the Remote Desktop Users group is there, I also added the user in manually. I have also checked the local security policy and both 'allow logon locally' and 'allow logon using terminal services' are enabled for remote desktop users - again I added the user in manually.
Still the user gets the same message. Any ideas?
