Local Policy .. Does Not Permit You to Log on Interactively

I am trying to learn to set up Remote Desktop. I can connect but I get
rejected at the login with this error message:



"The Local Policy of This System Does Not Permit You to Log on
Interactively"



According to MS KB 276590, this problem is caused by my being a member of a
group that is denied local logon access. But in checking my user rights, I
am a member of only two groups: Administrators and Remote Desktop Users.



Clearly, Administrators have local logon access. I assume that I have to
add myself to the Remote Desktop Users, to get access rights through Remote
Desktop.



What did I do wrong?



Somehow, I don't think this KB article explains my problem because I created
a new user, and assigned him as a member of only one group, Remote Desktop
Users. I still can't login under his name.



The KB article's solution is to run a program called ntrights.exe available
from the Win2K Resource Kit. I am running WinXP Professional on both the
host and the client. Is this an appropriate fix for me? How do I get
either the Win2K Resource Kit or a copy of ntrights.exe

SoonerAl,

Thanks. It was a long winded post but it gave me the clue to what I was
doing wrong.

The key concept was the need to add myself and other remote users to "Allow
logon through Terminal Services" in the Local Security Policies program
under Admin Tools.

Thanks again.

Did you do an upgrade from Windows 2000 by chance? This is the
typical cause of this problem.

Can you tell us whether the machine with this issue happens to be one which
was upgraded to XP from Windows 2000?

This isn't needed on most machines, but it seems always to be needed in the
upgrade instance.

Yes. I just upgraded my system from Win2K. I had to choose between doing a
clean install or upgrading, and I guess this was one of the gotchas from
upgrading.

It is, and one of us ought to get up the gumption to write a KB article
about it.
