local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively

all client (domain users) cannot log into any workstations because of this error: 'local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively".
I think its the GPO (on windows 2003 AD) but Im still a novice with GPO.
Can you tell me what to check and where exactly.

You will want to get an RSoP report from one of these machines, it will tell you what policies/setting are applied.

You can get an RSoP from GPMC or on a machine from the command line using gpresult.

Look for the deny logon locally setting  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc957048.aspx

or allow to logon locally   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc756809(WS.10).aspx

What are those set to.

Can admins login?

Its a group policy - check that you have not removed the user right to log on locally.

You have to re-apply the policy (gpupdate /force) and reboot the client for this to take effect.
