I have a weird situation where I installed Terminal Services on a 2003 R2 server, but I can't login any user in over RDP, if the user is not an admin.

Do I need to set group policy to allow some other group login? I thought that Remote Desktop Users have default login privileges.

Hi,

To allow other users to log in you will need to deploy a GPO to enable RDP and then on the terminal server you can set who can RDP, I think by default domain admins have this right.

The link to create/enable the GPO http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4980.how-to-enable-or-disable-remote-desktop-via-group-policy-windows-2008.aspx

This should also clear up any confusion: http://blogs.technet.com/b/askperf/archive/2011/09/09/allow-logon-through-terminal-services-group-policy-and-remote-desktop-users-group.aspx
