by default can a domain users RDP to a domain controller? I tried putting the account into the remote desktop users group which has the allow logon via terminal services. I also grant it the "allow logon locally" rights. But while I am able to log on to the DC locally with that account, I am not able to RDP into it. Is only domain admins able to RDP to DC only?

Software/Hardware used:
RDP, Active Directory

The users shoud be part of Domian admin and remote desktop users. Even if the user is part of Remote Desktop users he can.

    not sure why you would allow a RDP connection by domain users to your domain controller. not a good idea, you're asking for trouble. but it can be done. just add the group domain users to the Remote Desktop users group under the remote tab after selecting properties from the my computer icon.
