We have a Windows 2003 SBS and other two Terminal servers. today, No one cant logon the TS using RDC over the Internet or over VPN. When we try, we will receive this error: The system cannot log you on due to the following error: Access is denied.

No one is in the office this week. I can remote access to the SBS and then rebooted the TS remotely via Computer Management. I have rebooted all 3 servers (SBS and two TS). But still get the same error.

Through the Computer Management I collect these errors in the event viewer of the TS.
Event ID:      1219 -
Logon rejected for chicagotech\BobLin. Unable to obtain Terminal Server User Configuration. Error: Access is denied.
