Allow logon through Terminal Services issue

By Mikebyrne000 ·
Im trying to gain access to a domain controller via remote desktop using the admin passwords but im getting the following error:

"To log on to this remote computer, you must be granted the Allow log on through terminal services righ. By default, members of the Remote Desktop users group have this right. If you are not a member of this group or another group that has this right, or if the remote desktop user group does not have this right, you must be granted this right manually."

I can access all other servers remotely via the admin password, but not this one.

From what I can make out its a virtual machine running server 2003, but I can phyicaly access the box itself

Any ideas on a workaround to solve this issue?

Can you load Active Directory Users and Computers

on your workstation. If you don't have it installed then download the Server 2003 tools from Microsoft and install?

Accessing a DC is only possible with a domain logon so if you have write access to Active Directory - if you have a Domain Administrator login - then there ought to be no way to keep you out.

Yes, I have access to Active Directory.

Im using the domain administrator password to try and access the DC though ie "Domain\Administrator"
