Log On Through Remote Desktop

Specs: Windows 2008 R2 64x Server With Windows 7 64x & Windows XP 32 Bit Clients
Hi,

I've recently installed a Windows Domain, with a Single Windows 2008 R2 64 Bitserver as a Domain Controller, with around 90 Windows 7 64 bit desktops & 15 Windows XP Pro 32 Bit Desktops. All desktops are part of the domain. There are around 120 users on the Domain...

I would like any user to log onto any desktop, using remote desktop services. In the Domian Group policy on the Win2008 domain controller -> Computers Configuration- > Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> User Rights Assignment I have added the Domain Users to the Allow log on through Remote Desktop Services policy setting. However, when the users try to log onto any desktop, they receive a message saying The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively. . I have also added the Domain Users group to the Allow log on locally setting.

Any assistance in resolving this issue would be really appreciated. Thank you!!

Do you understand what you are doing?
why would anyone want anyone to be able to logon any pc via remote desktop?
you understand by doing so they are admins on the rdp desktop?

appears to me the settings you referenced are for the server not the workstations.

google How to enable remote desktop via group policy and review the articles

Wanderer, I know exactly what I'm doing, and why I'm doing it...

I also know exactly what I want, and have asked the question accordingly I would like to do this for desktops, and not servers

....and why would giving remote access to a Domain user on desktop make them admins ?

If I could find a suitable answer on google, why would I waste my time as well as yours and other members on this forum ?

Gee I type into google
How to enable remote desktop via group policy
and I get 1,320,000 hits

http://www.reborndigital.com/?p=88
and this

http://www.lazynetworkadmin.com/kno...

which also says this
"Remote Desktop allows remote administrators to log in remotely to manage a workstation". That's the whole reason to rdp is to admin the pc remotely.

You write:
"I would like any user to log onto any desktop, using remote desktop services"
"There are around 120 users on the Domain..."

I read that as you want 120 user accounts on every pc so you can have any user connect to any other users pc via RDP.
Wonder why I would ask if you know what you are doing?

Now perhaps you meant all users could rdp to the server. But if this were the case you would have mentioned Terminal/RDP services/role and the fact that you have a 120 TS/RDP cals. You mentioned neither.

So I am back at users logging on to other users pcs via rdp.
