Please help me,

So for whatever reason this morning, our broker server for TS decides to give users an error when logging on.

"To sign in remotely, you nee the right to sign through remote desktop services......"

The broker was working fine, but what I seem to gather is that its trying to redirect to itsself, which of course users don't have access.

- We have check registry settings on all the terminals and the all domain users have access, as well as the broker allows all domain users to connect.
-Rebooted
- Check each server can be resolved in DNS
- We only have 1 domain controller, haven't rebooted that yet, but don't see how that could affects.

What I am also trying to figure out is why all of a sudden did it happen out of the blue and how to fix it, any one have any idea where I can see other broker logs...

Event viewer says ID: 1306 Error  Remote Desktop Connection Broker Client failed to redirect the user. Error: Null

I added it to the group - but same issue.

Also the tech says "This is only needed if the Domain the system is connected to was setup with as Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible."

OK I found the error to be one of the actually servers in the farm, not the broker.

For whatever reason it didn't have the local policy to allow remote desktop users, once this was added, it then had the CHANGE LOGON set to disable. A quick CHANGE LOGON /ENABLE fixed the second issue and now users can logon.

Thanks!
