    Is there a way to enable Remote Desktop Connection on the LAN for limited
    user accounts? I get "The local policy of this system doesn't allow you to
    log on interactively" message when attempting to logon as either the limited
    user or a domain admin.

  2. To what?
    Presuming these are to workstations, make sure RD is enabled, and then make
    sure the appropriate group is inthe "allowed to connect" options. I usually
    add Remote Web Workplace Users".....Administrators are there by default
    unless someone removed it.

    OK I've got it now. The problem was on the System Properties/Remote
    tab/Select Remote Users... it says that OURDOMAIN\JohnSmith already has
    access. That threw me off track.

    It's necessary to manually add John to the list by:
    Clicking Add > Locations > navigate to Domain/MyBusiness/Users as the
    location then select JohnSmith. This adds him to the list of users that can
    connect to the computer. Now John, who is a limited user, can connect to his
    workstation from another workstation in the building.

    Thanks for the reply.

  4. Or use a group, which is what I do. I create a startup script and apply it
    via GPO....

    net localgroup administrators DOMAIN\localadmin /add
    net localgroup power users DOMAIN\localpoweruser /add
    net localgroup remote desktop users DOMAIN\Web Workplace Users /add

    (I create AD groups called LocalAdmin and LocalPowerUser)
