unable to Logon as a user to win2008 TS -> automatic logoff

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
i have installed a windows 2008 enterprise Server with terminal services and TS licensing. I have activated the TS licensing (per user). The server and the licensing is working without errors

when i logon as user it does the following:
- welcome
- applying user settings
- preparing desktop
- Logoff

this happens with all users. I looked at in event logs, but there is nothing in there


when i logon as administrator, everything works well
i tried to add the TS user group to the local administrator group, everything works, but this cannot be the solution.

What is wrong with my terminal server?
