I got the user configured for remote desktop connection but when I go to log on I get a message stating that I need to 'Allow log on through Terminal Services right' . Has anyone ever gotten this message and how do I correct it. Its all to make my Outlook hopefully configure my email settings automatically.  You guys are just such a great help all day everyday!

Your user is not a member of a group that is allowed to log on remotely. Typically, the group is Remote Desktop Users. Add the user to that group, and the problem should go away.

If it doesn't, you may need to make sure that Remote Desktop Users is allowed - it's possible that it isn't, but that's the default group.

Ok, I went to the server manager and added my user to the group of remote desktop connections. I set it to the least secure( any user can access remotely using any software) It shows I have access, but when I go to log in it says the 'Terminal Rights' error-  I have remote access with my admin log in, I just cant seem to get this one to work.  You said in the last post, "If it doesn't, you may need to make sure that Remote Desktop Users is allowed - it's possible that it isn't, but that's the default group. "  Is there yet another procedure and place to enable this? Thoughts?

You change this in Group Policy settings or the AD account (tickbox to set the option)

Your Remote Desktop Users group might not have the rights.

That's true if you're running Windows 2003 server. Not with 2008.

I'm actually not sure why you wouldn't be able to log into the TS by adding the user to the Remote Desktop Users group. That should have done it by default.

This may or may not work. I still had to wind up giving the 2 users Admin Rights to get the Remote Desktop feature to work. As doughboy said his solution should work by default. There has been an issue or two I have found on the web the says doughboy's solutions doesn't always work. It is a perffect way to fix the problem if it works for you. For someone else I know its works fine everytime, but for me (of course) I had to figure another workaround. Thanks for the help doughboy its greatly appreciated!!
