Must have Terminal Server User Access permissions

Initial problem: I installed my terminal server and licenses onto windows 2000. When I couldn't make it work (and after reading that it was better to not have it installed on a DC) I decided to uninstall it and install on my 2003 server.

Current Problem: After installing the licenses onto my 2003 server, I haven't yet been able to get a 'normal' user to be able to log in remotely. I have added them to the Remote Desktop Users group and added them to the local policy that would allow them to use Terminal service, etc. to no avail. In fact, now not only can the users I wanted as remote users not log in but the Administrator account is locked out as well. I receive the login prompt from the server (so i know I'm 'connecting') but receive the message, "To log on to this computer you must have Terminal Server User access permissions on this computer.", etc.

I would welcome any help that could be provided...

If TS licensing is not configured correctly - or is malfunctioning - you might have to follow these instructions:

Sorry. I do have that set. I should have mentioned that in my original question.

A reboot of both servers after changing the licenses from 2000 to 2003 licenses fixed the problem. Not sure  why it had to be rebooted though. I had already rebooted once before.

This problem is solved.

For anyone who is thinking of adding remote access to a server I would suggest this. Be sure EXACTLY which server you want to provide access on before installing the TS and Licenses. Especially if it is a production server that you can't reboot at will.
