I know this is not "Best Practice" - But I need to have RDS running on a 2008 R2 Server running AD. This is their only server. I have everything configured except - I get an error stating that the account must be an administrative account. I have read that you can enable "Allow log on thorugh Remote Desktop Service" in the group policy. But I cannot find where this is located on the Domain Controller? I am looking in the GBMC.MSC? Wrong place?
Start Group Policy Management Editor and edit “Default Domain Controller” policy. Locate “Allow log on through Remote Desktop Services” User rights setting (Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment\). Add the new security group and close the management console.
