Administrator account has a policy denying local and remote logon to SBS server, no other admin accounts

Somehow the Administrator account has a policy that is denying logon remotely and through terminal services.  Basically there is no access to the server.  Any ideas on how I can resolve this is there a tool that can be used to fix this, (ie. create new account, with domain admin priveledges)

Hello ryanva,

I assume you have physical access just login locally and fix the issue!

ryanva,

Or is your question that you can login locally and don't know what the issue is?  Is this a domain controller?

Did someone login to the SBS server and through the Server Management page use the 'Manage user' and modify Administrator to not have remote access capabilities?

As stated above it is a SBS 2003 server hence it is also a domain controller.  I have a feeling that someone did not know what they were doing and denied local and terminal services logins to a group that the administrator is a member of.

If you can't log onto the server locally or via RDP, you should still be able to install the Group Policy Management Console on another domain mamber (a client machine will work just fine if you have no other servers) and edit the offending policy from there.
