Users unable to sign-in to Citrix web interface

We have an new MetaFrame installation with multiple Active Directory trusted domains. The domain where the Citrix install is located has a group with all the accounts from the other domains, and that is the Citrix access group. The problem where experiencing is that some of the users located in these other domains cannot login, and receive the following error message:
"The supplied credentials could not be validated. Either they are incorrect, or there is a problem with the authentication system. Try again, or contact your help desk or system administrator for help."

The logs on the server show the following:

Now all the errors are recorded around the same time, so I believe there related. I've done some digging and figured out this all seems to be related to the citrix XML service.

Try using the MedEvac utility to diagnose your environment:

The login issue can be due to the user not having rights to the Presentation Server acting as the XML server configured in the farm settings.

I've seen this exact problem before. Check your Web Interface server to see which servers it is accessing for XML - go to each of these servers and look in the local security policy. You need to grant the "Log on Locally" permission to the users who cannot currently login.

Thanks.

The users have permissions to log on locally to serverm but still are unable to login. For now I'm having all users login to Citrix with accounts I've created in another domain.

Note that the "Log On Locally" permission has to be on all of the Web Interface server's XML sources, not just the Citrix server.
