Users Can't Log On to Termiinal Services

Posted on 2011-10-14

I have two servers, a domain controller and a terminal server.  I have added two users to the Remote Desktop Users group via the domain.  I have checked on the terminal server that the Remote Desktop Users group has Logon Through Terminal Services rights.  They are still unable to login to TS.  I have researched all the correct steps to take and have triple checked that they are correct.  I have ten TS licenses installed on the terminal server.  Any ideas?

    Try adding the users to the "Remote Desktop Users" group on the Terminal Server itself rather than the "Remote Desktop Users" group in the domain.

    Check the below points..:

    Computer management - users properties - Terminal Services Profile - Deny logon to Terminal Server.

    If it is domain user, go to AD for user properties and check the same.

    Secpol.msc - user rights assignments - allow logon through terminal services.
