Remote Desktop for an Active Directory users

Hello,

When I try to remote into a computer for a standard user account i get this error '"The connection was denied because the user account is not authorized for remote login". However when I add them to the local administrators I can remote in. I added the user to the Remote Desktop User group and got the error again "The connection was denied because the user account is not authorized for remote login".. Is there something else I can do or try?

Thanks

On the local computers you need to add the domain group called Remote Desktop Users to the local remote desktop users group.  Then they will be authorised to remote on to that machine.

When you say the "Remote Desktop User group" do you mean the local computers Remote Desktop users Group?

Remote desktop user shoul have logon localy policy on the server the need to logon.
In Administrative tools, local policy, you'll find user rights, choose logon locally and give the permission to a group ex:TSUsers  the add the users that need to logon locally to that group

tonyperth,

When I go into active directory and expand the Domain. Builtin is one of the items to choose. There is a security group called Remote Desktop Users. I add the user account that I am trying to remote into to that group. And i get that error "The connection was denied because the user account is not authorized for remote login"

smangogna,

Do i do that on the server side or on the computer?

You have to do on serveer side, is the server a DC or a standalone server?
If it is a DC you have to go to domain controller security policy

Under Use rights assignment I see
Allow log on locally
and Allow log on through remote desktop services.

Would i do both?

Well i noticed that "Remote desktop Services" is not installed. Do I need to install that? Because I can remote in with the administrator account. If i install that and add the users to the remote desktop user group do you think that will get it to work?

thanks
