I installed TS.  Just as I've done 100 times.  Server 2003 member server.  Joined to domain.  Went into groups; added [DOMAINNAME]\domain users just as I've done many times before.  No Joy.  Uninstalled and reinstalled TS from console. No Joy.  Played around in RDP properties under Terminal Server Config.  No Joy.  Added Domain Users to permissions there.  No Joy.  Manually aimed license server at license server.  No Joy.  Nothing I do lets the damn users log in; or the domain administrator log in!  I added a bunch of groups and specific users to the Remote Users group on the server; No Joy.

Here is the error all domain users get:
"To log on to this remote computer, you must have Terminal Server User Access permissions on this computer. By default, members of the Remote Desktop Users group have these permissions. If you are no a member of the Remote Desktop Users group or another group that has these permissions, or if the Remote Desktop User group does not have these permissions, you must be granted these permissions manually."

1.)
Check Licensing Mode
--> Adminitrative Tools/Terminal Services Configuration/Server Settings/Licensing

1.1.)
Check protocol/connection security
--> Terminal Services Configuration/Connections/[RDP/ICA/...]/Permissions

2.)
Check Terminal Server Licensing
--> Administrative Tools/Terminal Server Licensing

3.)
Check if logon is enabled
--> at command prompt type "change logon /query"
Enable logon: change logon /enable
Disable logon: change logon /disable

If you are using Citrix have a look at the workload (q farm).

Is there any other message in the eventlog?

i called microsoft.

Here are the steps that I performed to resolve the issue:

-- Checked the group memberships: they seemed to be correct on the DC.

-- Checked the same on Terminal Server.

-- We had only Administrators in the Remote Desktop Users group. Added Domain Users in that.

-- Checked the RDP connection's properties (in TSCC.MSC): Found that we had domain users already there with full control.

-- Checked if there was any group policy hitting TS.

-- Found that we had number of local group policies configured.

-- Added domain users to "Allow access through Terminal Services" policy.

-- Added domain users to "Allow access through network".

-- Found that we were getting events stating that TS was not able to locate the LS.

-- Checked in TSCC.msc that Licensing Server discovery was set to "As Selected".

-- Added BackupServ2 to the list.

-- Rebooted the machine (AppSrv - the TS)

-- After rebooting, we were able to RDP the server.

 

If you have any further queries, feel free to write back to me, I will be more than happy to answer them.
