administrator denied access to terminal services
Posted on 2011-02-19
I am not sure what happend here but a user called because they couldn't access terminal services...I am not sure if anyone made any group policy edits or anything but I am suspecting that is the case.
In order to get the person logged in I had to add them to the local terminal server via computer management - remote - and add user. I never had to do that before since the user is a member of the remote desktop users group and the remote desktop users group by default has login rights to terminal servers....another thing that is very wierd now as well is that all 3 of my 2008 servers are denying the administrator access to log in? I can rdp into all of the 2003 servers as the admin but not the 2008 - I suspect that I could log onto them locally and add the administrator manually however I just want to try to get things back to the way they were...ex the administrator can log into all servers remotley....and remote desktop users can log into all of the terminal servers without having to add them locally to the terminal server via computer management - remote - and adding all the users...
If anyone could help me troubleshoot on where to look for why this is happening it would be great...the only thing that I am sure of is that the domain controller had been modified for something last night -
