Windows – How to grant remote desktop right to a user in Windows Server 2008

permissionsremote desktopuser-accountswindows server 2008

I create a user and add it to group Remote Desktop Users but I cannot still remote using mstsc. The error message said the user/group doesn't have the right to remote.

My question is how can I grant this right to the group?


Best Answer

Check in the group policy editor (gpedit.msc) under Computer Config > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment. Find the entry for "Allow log on through remote desktop services" and "deny log on through remote desktop services", and see if the groups in question are in either of those categories. Deny permissions will usually override allow permissions.
