I have SBS2011 Std and 2008R2 Std installed on seperate servers.  I have detailed the setup in this (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/System_Utilities/Remote_Access/Q_26897476.html) thread.

I solved my problem (maybe???) when I discovered that the Security Groups that couldn't log on were not members of the RDS Server's LOCAL Remote Desktop Users group.  This is rather than (what I expected) the domain Remote Desktop Users group.

Anyway, as detailed in the thread above, I have three Security Groups that I want to use RDS and to have different restrictions apply.  The groups are named RDS Users, StaffRDS and Students.  When I add these groups to the LOCAL Remote Desktop Users group on the RDS Server they can all log on remotely and everything works as it should.  However, after 20 - 30 minutes the StaffRDS and Student groups cannot logon BUT the RDS Users group can.  When I check the LOCAL group on the RDS Server the group RDS Users are still there but the other two groups have disappeared.

Can anyone please tell/suggest me what is going on here???

PS.  I cannot add the Domain Remote Desktop Users group to the local group on the RDS Server.

OK, found the problem.  When adding Users/Groups to the Remote Desktop Users group on the RDS Sever I was adding multiple groups at the same time.  However, if you add a group at a time then it resolves the issue.

I do have to say though that this is absolutely ludicrous, being able to add only one group at a time.  I thought we were using Windows Server 2008 R2 - not some command line driven sytem from the 1950's!!!!
