locked out of GPEDIT - allow logon through terminal services - help please

In an effort to assist me, one of my staff changed a policy setting on our 2008 Standard Server using gpedit.msc

The setting changed was Windows settings / Local policies / User Rights Assignment / Allow Logon Through terminal Services

He changed this to Administrator and now as a consequence, none of the terminal services users can access the system. I cannot set it back as it appears to be locked.

I am logged on as the administrator and have tried running gpedit.msc as the administrator but no luck.

I would appreciate assistance as I have 20 users coming in the morning and they can't access their system.

Have you tried logging on as a local administrator and a domain administrator?

with gpedit.msc you can only change the local GPO. In a AD System you have to configure the policys in group policy management console under start -> management -> Group Policy Management Console.
Here you should can change the policys.

Not sure how to log on as a domain administrator, the only choice I have to logon is as Administrator.

I'll have a look at the Group Policy Management Console and see what policies are set up.

Thanks
