Windows 2003 TSE and DC

Configuration: New 2008 R2 Server, old 2003 SP2 Server. Both are DCs, DNS, GC,

All applications has been migrated to the 2008 Server. Noting left in the 2003 server, but still a DC
I unstalled all application from the 2003 DC and installed terminal serveur (TSE)

(I know TSE on a DC in not recommended but it is only from 3 remote users and I want to keep the 2003 as a DC for security)

I cannot login in the 2003 TSE. Telling be I have a right problem. I think the problem comes because the TSE is also a DC and there is a parameter in group strategy to change (I had the same problem some time ago).
Any one knows what to do ?

even not able to open a TSE session, i expect  its setup related error , probable some component fails to install , or port 3389 is blocked by firewall

do the fallowing ..

try to telnet your server with port number 3389 if its not work check your Windows firewall or external firewall if port 3389 is allow  

if this is not a a problem i recommend uninstall TSE on your system reboot it and then install it again

Since the time I installer TSE on the server I cannot open a TSE session even as administrator

In the GPO of "default domain controler policy"
I added everything in the "local strategy, user rights"
- Allow session logon by TSE Services, I added all groups (domain admins, administrators...)
- Allow local logon

Any idea why I cannot open a TSe session ? Even as administrator
