I have a domain user on a Win 7 pc who needs access to a Windows 2003 and a 2008 server.  I added him to the remote desktop users group and made sure he was also added to the users list in system properties on the remote settings tab.  Also it is set to the less secure mode.  I alos verified in group policy that remote desktop users group has terminal services access under computer/security.   Is there anything I am missing?

Can a different user RDP from the users Win7 PC.  Can this user RDP from a different computer?

Adding a user to the domain Remote Desktop Group does not by default give them access to the individual servers.
 
Add the domain remote desktop group, to the Local Remote Desktop group on each server.

Are there people or groups that might have been Denied Long through terminal services through either GPO or local security on the servers?

Try running RSOP against one of the servers trying to RDP into and the user that fails.

It would be more helpful if you write up the exact error message.

Also check Remote Desktop service is set to logon as Network Service or LocalSystem, If its Local System then change it to Network Service and then try.
