Hi,
I have created a new domain user on a v. small domain with just one server which is a DC and a TS. Some time back I set up one user to access TS. This works fine although I recall that I had a problem getting it to work initially - I wish I could remember how I resolved it as now I can't get a second user to log on.....
I have set up all the user settings in ADUC identically e.g. they are both members of the Remote Desktop group and neither are administrators, but i still get the error:
"To log on to this computer, you must be granted the Allow log on through Terminal Services right etc."
I can't think what else there is to do as the other user works fine.
Please help!
Cheers,

Assuming you're aware that letting users log on to your DC and using it as an application server isn't really recommended:
Create a group "DCTSUser" or whatever; add the users you want to be able to access the DC.
Start the Terminal Services Configuration MMC on the DC, open the properties of the RDP protocol, go to the Security tab, and allow User Access and Guest Access for the group you created.
Open the Domain Controller Security Policy, and add the group "DCTSUser" to the permission "Log on locally" (Security Settings\Local Policies\User Permissions).
The users should now be able to logon to your DC using RDP.
