I can not get my terminal services to connect on my DC

I have a small Windows 2003 server network, with Windows 7 and XP workstations connected to it. I try to remote into my DC/DNS server and get the following error; "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 not a member of the Remote Desktop Users Ggroup or another group that has these permissions, or if the Remote Dektop User group does not have these permissions, you must be granted these permissions manually"  I am trying to log in as ADMINISTRATOR and I verified that I am still a member of the REMOTE DESKTOP USER GROUP.  Everything appears to be ok on the server. Any ideas?

    Make sure you have RDP enabled go to the your System properties then click on the remote tab make sure this is enabled. Check to make sure the Admin is part of the Remote Desktop group.

    Also, check group policy to see if the Remote Desktop has access to Log on through Terminal server.

    Go to Terminal Server Configuration right-clic RDP-TCP go to properties make sure that the Remote Desktop Users are added here as well for permissions.
