Windows 2008, Sysvol, RDP, and access denied

Hello all,
I have a client that has Windows 2008 standard server.  When he logs on as a administrator equivalent account on the server itself he can get to the sysvol directory.  When he logs onto the server through RDP with the same administrator account he gets an access denied error when he tries to get to the sysvol directory.
Not sure what to do on this.
Thanks,
Kelly W.

Have you already checked the security setting of the SYSVOL folder.
Check if there are any deny boxes checked.

There are no deny boxes that are checkmarked, so I am not sure what we need to do next.
Thanks,

Are there any groups in the security settings of sysvol that are related to RDP ?

Or are there GPO in place for RDP sessions ?
