I've got a 2008 sbs domain & am trying to remotely set up a computer for a new user.
When adding new computer through the SBS Console, I granted her access to an office computer, as a local admin & the 'can log on remotely to this computer' option is checked & grayed out, as if I couldn't change it if I wanted to. When trying to connect via terminal services as the new user, I get the message 'the connection was denied because the user account is not authorized for remote login'. If that's the case, what good is the 'can log on remotely to this computer' option? If I try connecting the same way as the domain admin, I get the message 'to log on to this remote computer, you must be granted the Allow log on through terminal services right....'. First off, shouldn't domain admin pretty much be able to do and/or access anything & everything, unless it's been specifically blocked? Secondly, I know I could go to that computer & add that user to local remote users group & this would be fixed, but I really didn't want to drive the 65 miles there & 65 miles back to do this! Is there any way I can 'fix' this remotely?
