there are currently no logon servers available to service the request

We have setup a terminal server running windows server 2008.  I have installed terminal services and activated the license.  The license server is on the same machine.  

Before setting up the terminal server I added it to the local domain.  The domain is a small buisness server running 2003.  I one issue connecting to the domain that required me to disable rpc filter on the isa server.  

Once connected I enabled the rpc filter on the isa server.

Currently if I try to connect to the terminal server I get the message: there are currently no logon servers available to service the request.

The only way I can connect remotely is if I add the users to the administrators group.  

What could be the problem?  Do I need to disable rpc filter again?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried disabling the firewall on the TS Server ?

No.

I think the problem is that I have installed the license on the 2008 server and it is running as a local license server.

What if I install the license server on the domain controller, which is the windows sbs 2003?  I looked at that option 1st but could only select terminal license server for 2000 or 2003.  Do I need to update the 2003 sbs machine to load the license for 2008 terminal services?

You might take a look at this blog from Susan Bradley, another SBS MVP on this exact topic.  If you've followed all the steps...and still working, then advise and I'll try to find more..  http://msmvps.com/blogs/bradley/archive/2008/05/20/attaching-a-windows-2008-terminal-server-box-to-a-sbs-2003-server.aspx
From all I've read (None of my customers have TS Servers) TS licensing should be on W2008 server

The TS License server remains on the Server 2008.  I setup the domain users that remote connect on the 2008 TS server and all is working now.  Thanks.

Yes, as stated previously you should have the licensing server on server 2008 and of course it is always a good idea to have the user's account enabled for remoted connection :-).

The user accounts were enabled for remote connection already since they were connecting using remote desktop to another server already.

What I was missing was setting up the domain account on the user accounts area of the server 2008 machine.

The missing part was adding the domain accounts to user accounts in the terminal server 2008.
