unable to connect to terminal services in 2003
Posted on 2011-10-03
I have a network with 4 windows 2003 servers, one of which is used for terminal services. I am trying to enable terminal services on the newest server in the network so I can split the load between the 2 boxes. I have enabled terminal service licensing on the newer server and pointed it back to the original terminal server to get the CALs, and that appears to be working properly. My issue is now that I have enabled terminal services on the newer server I cannot actually remote into it, even as administrator. I now get the error "to log onto this remote computer, you must have Terminal Server User Access Permissions on this computer". The newer server is not a DC. I have verified that the "Remote Desktop Users" group is listed in "allow logon through Terminal Services" in the group policy, and administrator as well as my user are members of the group. I have even added Administrator and my own user specifically in the group policy. The "Deny logon through Terminal Services" GP only lists asp.net.
What else can deny access to Terminal services?
