Group "Remote Desktop Users" can´t connect to W2k8 Terminal Server

Hello,

i hope you can help me. I have a W2k8 Std. Terminal Server. At the moment i have the problem that no user i add localy to the "Remote Desktop Users" Group can´t connct. With my admin account i have no problems to connect but if i want to log on with a domain user i recive the message "To log on this remote computer, you must be granted ......"

At active directory the checkbox "deny this user permission to log..." for this user are not active. I started the license diagnostic on this terminal server with the result that all is ok (status green). If i take a look at the eventlog i see the following:

################################################################

System - Event ID: 1004

The terminal server cannot issue a client license.  It was unable to issue the license due to a changed (mismatched) client license, insufficient memory, or an internal error. Further details for this problem may have been reported at the client's computer.

Security - Event ID: 4625

An account failed to log on.
Account For Which Logon Failed:
Security ID: NULL SID
Account Name: testuser
Account Domain: TEST

Failure Reason: The user has not been granted the requested logon type at this machine.
Status: 0xc000015b
Sub Status: 0x0

################################################################

I have installed 20 User CALS. Both the TS server and the TS Lic server configured for User CALS.

After 2 days i have no more ideas. Did you have any idea how i can solve this problem.

Thanks
Chris

The license problem: Is TS aware of the location of the TS licensing server? If TS licensing isn't located on DC, this nead to be configured by either using local Server Manager or using GPO
Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Terminal Server\Licensing\Use the specified Terminal Services licensing server

The grant permission problem:
Check the policy setting includes the Remote Desktop Users and not only Administrators.
Computer Configuration\Policies\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment\Allow log on through Terminal Services

Run RSOP.msc (Resultant Set Of Policies) to evaluate where the policy setting is propagated from.
After that, use Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) to set the policy setting by either edit the existing GPO or create a new GPO linked to an OU closer to the computer object.
