I have just added a new server to my domain which is going to host one of my applications.
I have configured the server to be both the remote desktop licensing manager & connection host. I have also added all the required users to the "Remote Desktop Group" on my domain controller.

However none of the standard users are able to connect to the server as they get the message “connection was denied because the user account is not authorised for remote login"

Admin's have no problem accessing this server, the only way I can get any standard users to connect is to add them to the "Local Remote Desktop Group" on the application server but I want to avoid this as I would like to control all the groups via the DC.

Any ideas where I could be going wrong...
