How do I set permissions on Windows 2003 domain, so that I've got the same user account login  into multiple workstations at the same time? Thanks in advance for your help.

Are you having problems doing that? I thought that worked by default.

If I understand the question, this is default behavior for a user account in a Windows domain.  The account should be able to log in to multiple workstations simultaneously.

Above is right. By default it's there. if it's not restricted policy has been set in your AD for concurrent login.
see if it can help you

By default the same user account can log on to muliple workstaions at once - you dont have to do anything.
If you want to restrict users to a single logon then you need to use a utility such as LimitLogon

After looking at the problem in more detail,it's only an issue with that particular workstation. The error it's getting is The local policy of this machine does not permit you to logon interactively.

So the user cannot log in to that machine at all?  Or at least not sitting in front of it?

Go to that machine's local security policy and look in the Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment for "Deny log on locally" and see if the user is listed there.
