"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What is the error when the user try to connect to server via rdp

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

Thanks for the response, could you please send me the Steps to resolve the issue
waiting your reply!
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
