Server 2008 and RDP/Terminal Server

I have a new Server 08 Enterprise server in place.  Pretty plain install.  I installed Remote Desktop Services, added some users to the remote group.  My admins can log in of course, but not my domain users.  I'm getting the message about being added to the remote desktop users group, which they are.

Am i missing something in 08?

Thanks

Cliff

Hi,

have you added the users to both local and domain Remote Users Group?

Remote Desktop Group is one thing but you need to make sure you have Remote desktop host session installed. You need a RDS Licensing server as well

I understand you have added your users to RDU group. I was asking which one? AD group? Local Security group on TS? Or both? :)

So I guess you have installed RD services on your DC. Not recommended but OK. You'll have to grant the Remote Desktop Users Group the Allow log on through Terminal Services user right.
