    Win2k terminal server connection problem


    by chachen ·

    Dear All,

    I am having problem access terminal server from the client.

    I setup a Win2K terminal server & I run into a little problem.

    Steps to setup Terminal Server,
    1. Install Win2K
    2. Start –> Run –> dcpromo –> follow the wizard to setup active
    3. Control Panel –> Add/Remove Programs –> Add/Remove Windows
    Components –> check Terminal services & Terminal Service licensing.
    4. Reboot.
    5. Created User and Power User accounts.
    6. Assign security by Administrative Tools
    –> Domain Security Policy.

    Under policy I found “Log on Locally”. I right click on it –> Choose security –> Add –> users / power users –> OK.
    7. Create terminal service client disks.
    8. Install client on the client workstation.–
    Here are the problem I run into.

    I’ve created a power user and a user at the server. Therefore server
    have 3 different account.

    Power user

    When I logon to terminal server, only Administrator are able to establish connection. Pow

      I suggest is a settings problem with your users.
      Go to Active Directory Users and Computers ( Administrative Tools, Configure your server, Active Directory, Manage) Then select your user e.g. Power User or User, finally select the ‘Terminal Services Profile’ and down at the bottom is a check box ‘Allow logon to terminal server’. While you are there you could also configure a Home directory, or even a Profile directory.

      The right to ‘Logon locally’ is not needed for terminal server clients.

        1. You don’t have to go through so many steps to get into Active Users & Computers.
        2. By defalut Power users & users are assign
        ‘Allow logon to terminal server’ permission.
        Therefore that is NOT the correct answer.
