Unable to remote access some Servers for Domain Administrator?


  • Hi,

    I am new to RDS.  Currently, I am a member of the Built-In Administrator of a Domain.  I find that I am also a member of the RDS Group (With Policy that "Allow users to connect remotely using Remote Desktop Services).

    I am quite confusing as I find that I am able to remote access some servers at home with my own credentials BUT some cannot.  All of them are Domain Servers.

    Your advice is sought.

  • For those servers that cannot remote login, I get the error message "The connection was denied because the user account is not authorized for remote login".

    I have checked the Target Server and there is no login failure message.  Would there be any entries in the Windows 2008 R2 RDS Server ?
