I created a new user to access our terminal server and i gave all the same access which other terminal server users have. They all are under Remote desktop users group. But only this particular new user i created having problems log in into the terminal server, when i use this user name i get this error message

  "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."

How can i resolve this?

Check the users "Terminal Services Profile" in Active Directory. Make sure "allow logon to terminal server" is selected.

Also check terminal services configuration (start > run > tscc.msc or was it TSConfig.msc in 2008...? > security) that your user is listed here (or the remote desktop users group)

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

If you tick the "deny this user terminal server" he will not be able to log on to any TS in your domain.

When a user is in the Remote Desktop Group he will get ordinary "user access" to the TS. When you say restrict a user, what do you want him not to do?

Citrix is superior when it comes to these limitations, but is offcours expensive.

In server 2003 your question is impossible. You can lock the user down with different GPOs (hide c-drive etc. but that's a bad idea). I'm pretty new to server 2008 so I can't say for sure, but I guess it will be difficult. I have seen Server 2008 "Publish Application" but I have not yet study it, so I can say if that's the solution.
