To log on to this remote computer, you must be granted the allow log on through Terminal Services right. By default, members of the Remote Desktop User group have this right.

Hi,
We have 2 servers in our network. Server A and B (both windows standard server 2003). Till yesterday Server B used to act as AD and terminal server in remote admin mode.  We need more than 2 users to login at the same time; we added a new server C to the network. Server C is windows 2003 standard server. To add the server C, we just made the computer part of the domain. I am not sure if I need to do something else to make it a member domain.
We routed the remote traffic to server C. We have a weird problem. When we go to secpol.msc and go to allow logon to remote access properties (see file attached). the add group is in gray;;its not letting add any users. We tried adding users thru RDP permissions; IT shows the users on secpol.msc for a couple of hours; the users can logon during this period. After the 2 hours the list of users is getting deleted and users are getting the message in the subject line...
any help greatly appreciated...

It seems like on your Server B which is now a Domain Controller, you may have enabled the "Logon through Terminal Services on your default Domain Policy. If this is applied to your domain, it will affect all servers and workstations. If Server C is a member server then that's why the option is greyed out.
Server B is an AD and should not be a Terminal Server. You can set the default domain policy to "Not Defined" then it will allow you to make change locally on Server C.

Domain Controllers Policy,  Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / User Rights Assignment. Allow logon through Terminal Services.
