User in Remote Desktop User group gets access denied when remoting into a windows 2003 and 2008 server

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.

There is no firewall
And yes another user with the same privileges can RDP in

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

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.
