I am running Server 2003 on 2 machines.  Both are DC's I have given an OU rights to log on locally as well as through terminal services in both the domain security policy and the domain security policy. Still only my admins can log in. The problem is only on the newer DC and not the original. Also, if i try to DCPromo and demote the newer server i get authentication errors even when using the admins account.

Thanks for your help.

The security policy applied to Domain Controllers comes from the Default Domain Controllers Policy, not the Default Domain Policy.

The difference is extremely important. The Default Domain Controllers Policy contains a large number of settings for the DCs that define access to pretty much everything they do. This is part of the reason why it is important that DCs remain in the Domain Controllers OU.
