Cannot RDP into remote machine on a domain-only the current user or administrator can login
Posted on 2008-06-20
I am attempting to login to a remote computer that is on a domain. I first connect via VPN then start a RDP session to the computer. When I connect, I get the message: "The user DOMAIN\user is currently logged on to this computer. Only the current user or an administrator can log on to this computer."
My AD user account is a member of the compter's local Administrators group and my account has rights to be a remote user on the computer.
The wierd think is that this problem seems to happen on the laptops at the office, not the desktops. When I RDP to a desktop, I get right in (of course I prompted to disconnect the current user if they are logged in).
I don't know what the difference would be between the laptop and desktop setups.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
