I have seen this behavior on a Windows 2008 Enterprise

:to logon to this remote computer, you must be granted the "allow log on through terminal services right"  etc.

The RDP has the users we want to access but still can't RDP .. any suggestions?

There are a couple of things to consider. There is a good article explaining the difference between the GPO and the RDP users group:

Check this...it could helps..but it's for win server 2003....


We need to do this through Group Policy.  Open Active Directory Users and Computer, right click on an OU, select properties and click on the group policy tab. Click on new, give it a name for example Admin Access to remote.  Select the file and click on Edit.
Group Policy Object Editor opens.  Select Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Local Policies, User Rights Assignment.  On the right pane double click Allow log on through Terminal Services or Remote Desktop Connections.  Under this properties window, click on add user or group and select Domain Admins.  You can add any user you want.  Means that in this tutorial only domain Administrator would have access to use remote desktop connection.  Click ok..etc etc…and close all windows.
