Hi all, our setup is MS2008 standard and MS2003 standard with thin clients running off the MS2008 box. We need to run an older version of quickbooks in our company which I have setup on an old MS2003 machine. For some time, the setup was working ok, users would rdp into the 2003 box, run the app and close the session. Its now coming up with an error message "log on through terminal services must be activated manually" There is no AD on the 2003 as I have downgraded the 2003 box and have also gone through the security policies on both machine and have enabled one user for testing purposes with no results.
Let me know if you need more info. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

thinhat

The 2003 box has a grace period until October 2009, I had thought the same thing :)

the fact that it was working and now isnt suggests it has timed out

Managed to fix the issue, Quickbooks has a rights policy which makes things a little bit more complicated that they should be. Basically I created a group called QB users and gave that group full rights, after that it worked like a charm.

How strange - never really dealt with QuickBooks here in the UK

Glad you got it sorted though
