I think you have GPO enabled on OU containing 2003 server, in that policy you must have already enabled setting called "allow logon through terminal \ remote desktop services"

U have to edit this policy and add required users \ groups there so that you can take RDP of server

go to AD users and computers
locate OU where 2003 server kept
locate any attached GPOs to that OU
In GPO navigate to computer configuration\windows settings\security settings\local policies\user rights assignment and locate below setting "allow logon through terminal \ remote desktop services"
Add domain\domain admins, and any other groups here you may have so that they can logon to server with RDP
Also add those groups to local administrators group on 2003 server

U can right click 2003 server computer account in AD and click on manage, this interface will allow you to add users \ groups in local administrators group of 2003 server

Then try to logon to server
thank you for the help, please close the case
