Test User cannot login WS via Remote Desktop
Posted on 2013-12-10
I know this is not a new topic but I believe I may have missed some steps, and Experts, please help me out. My problem is I have created a test user which is a Domain Users, I am trying to login my workstation via Remote Desktop by using this test user, however I was stopped by
"The connection was denied because the user account is not authorised for remote login"
What I have done so far were
- Enable Remote Desktop on my workstation(Win7) "Allow connection from computers running any version of Remote Desktop"
- On Domain Controller, I have edited Default domain Policy
Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Network\Network Connections\Windows firewall\Domain Profile. I enabled Allow inbound Remote Desktop exceptions, I set value is *
Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Connections. I enabled Allow users to connect remotely by using Remote desktop Services. And just optional, I also enabled Limit number of connections to 999999 (unlimited)
- I have added the test user to Remote Desktop Users group
- I have tried to run gpupdate , and also gpupdate /force. And even restart both the DC and the workstation. But I am still being stopped by that error.
I have read some sources that said I should add the test user to Remote Desktop Users when you enable Remote Desktop on workstation. I think it may work out this way but what if you had 1000 users?
So, Experts, please help me out. Which steps am I missing here? What should I configure on the Domain controller to enable the domain users can logon WS via Remote Desktop? Thank you.
