Terminal Server Remote Access Windows 2003

I have a new domain that was setup. Everything is great except that I have to give users Domain Admin rights to logon to Terminal Services. I am not using group policy and the users have been added to the Remote Desktop Users group in Active Directory. I also made sure that the Remote USers group was added in group policy under User Right Assigment - Allow logon through Terminal Services. I am working on a 2003 Terminal Server and my Domain Controller is a different 2008 box.


My question is since I am not using Group Policy is there something else I need to do to make this work.
Do I need to enable this policy and if so how?

THANKS!!!

If you add your users to the "remote desktop users" group, and then go to the local policy of that server, to add the remote desktop users the allow logon locally - doesn't that help ?

In general I don't like users to have admin-rights :)
