Q: My general manager wants to log on to our server from his "XP Home" machine at home. I've added his name to...
local security policies, but when I try to log him on I get the error message: "Local Policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively."
The TS is set as an application server. The only way I can get him logged on from home is to make him a member of the administrators group, and I don't want that. What have I done wrong and how do I fix it?
A: Is the terminal server a domain controller? If so, you'll need to edit the security settings to permit Joe User to log on. Check out these instructions.
