The local policy of this system does not permit you to log on interactively

I just took over as administrator this Windows SBS 2008 network.  It works well, but when I try to log on to a workstation remotely I get this flag.

Is this a local policy problem?

Yes, You need to go into your policy configurations and allow remote administration. It is usually turned off by default for security reasons.

That makes sense but I can't find the switch.  All users are already members of the RWW group.

I did some further checking and discovered  If you are running SBS or a Domain Controller and the Workstation is a member of the Domain you will need to do the following:

Logon to the workstation as the administrator.
Right click on the computer icon then click properties, then select the remote tab.

You will see a button that alllows you to select users allowed to access the ws remotely.

Add the domain user that you would like to allow access to that ws, in the form of domain\username

See if this fixes your problem

If its on a domain on the user account tick the deny option under terminal services

ITGUY.  That did indeed fix the problem although the account added was the Administrator's account!  Anyway, as long as it solves the problem I'm happy.
