Term Services Logon Trouble

By d.jones092 ·

This is going to be a tough one, I think.

I've got term services set up on my Win2k server, and am currently testing it for deployment to our remote sites. This is really my first dabble with term services, so I'm a complete newbie.

Anyhoo...Myself and the other IT person here are able to log into the term server using the client with no problem. We are both Administrators. However, when trying to log into the term server using one of my user's logons, I get "The local policy of this system does not allow you to log in interactively".

I've looked at my local policy on the server, and nothing stands out. To be certain, I added "Terminal Server Users" to the "Log onto this machine locally" policy on the server. I have also verified that the user(s) in question have "Allow Terminal Server login" checked in their user profile in AD.

This is a sticky one.

Any thoughts?

If you make the user a local admin on the client it will work. That is as far as I have got. There must be some area for which full access is only gained when Local Admin rights on the client are applied. I have not investigated any further yet.

Actually, I got a reply from another board I frequent. The person indicated that if the TS is in Admin Mode vs application server mode this will happen. Upon checking, I discovered that I had not yet activated the server, and it was indeed in Admin mode. Hopefully the activation will fix this.
