Users can't login in a domain

Hi,

I have a Windows 2003 server that is a Domain Controller.
I'm sure Active Directory is well installed and configured.

But the domain users can't login. I get this message saying that I must allow login through Terminal Server right and if I add them to the Remote DEsktop Users Group, it should work.
So I did, but still they can't login.

Now, I went to Terminal Server Licensing and I have "No Terminal Server license server is available in the current domain or workgroup".
I click "Action -> Connect" and type the server IP, but I get the message saying "Windows cannot connect to a licensing server".

My server is not connected to the internet.

Is this what's preventing my domain users from logging in ?

If so, is there another way of letting them log in ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Warm Regards,
Mário Gamito

regular client.
I've already added the user to the Administrator Group and now I can login, but it's a situation I don't want to mantain.

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

To be more specific: open Group policy management console, edit Default Domain Controller Policy, expand Computer -> Windows -> Security -> Local settings -> User Right Assignment -> Allow log on locally -> Add here the users who should be able to logon to DC.
But I STRONGLY don't recommend to allow anyone else than admins to be allowed to logon to DC.

Haim96: sorry if you feel neglected in this case, no problem for me to re-assign the points.
Maybe from the asker's point of view you identified the problem and provided very general solution, while I provided exact information that could be used to solve the issue.
Anyway you still participated on the problem, so as I say - no prob to re-split.
Regards
Martin

never mind... i have no complains for you. you did great job!
but i'm not sure that you could give your answer without my answer (not from the start at list)
so since there is kind of dependence between the two answers the asker must consider
this when he give points...

i have seen this alot here and it's annoying me.

Are your end users making ugly email signatures?

Have you left it up to your end users to create their own email signatures? Are they forgetting to add the company logo or using garish font colors? Take control and ensure all users have the same email signature.
