    Hi, i've just turned terminal services into application mode on my SBS 2000,
    however whenever i try to log in as anybody else except admin it says 'the
    local policy of this system does not allow you to logon interactively'
    I have created a new OU called 'TSClients' and edited the policy to allow
    logon interactively rights to the people that be, also i have enabled the
    'allow logon to termainal server' in the termianl server tab in A.D
    Properties, Am i missing something?
    (thought i'd add - this server was running exchange until recently when it
    was uninstalled)

  2. Hi,
    You actually need to check policies that are affecting the server itself,
    such as the Domain Controller Policy, or the actual Domain Policy. the Local
    Security Policy should also be checked just in case the change happened only
    at that level.
    Look for:
    Computer-Windows Settings-Security Settings-Local Policies-Log on Locally

    Make sure your users are listed there, on a Domain Controller only Admins
    are allowed log in rights by default.

    That error usually occurs when the user trying to make the remote connection
    is not a member of the local machines "Remote Desktop Users". Check that out
