just want to confirm you're referring to the local Remote Desktop Users group on the server.

also make sure you've got the licensing mode set up properly and pointed to your terminal server licensing server.

I am referring to the remote desktop users group in the AD. I also made that server a licensing server.

you need to add that domain group to the local group on the server and you should be all set.

terminal services looks to the local group for some reason. I just have a domain group which i use to manage the users and i gave that domain group permission by adding it to the local group
