Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services
I have a newly setup Windows Server 2008 Standard server running terminal services and license server. Licensing is setup per user. Server is also domain controller. Right now it is allowing connections only from domain users who have administrative rights, which of course I do not want "regular" users to have. I have been searching for answers for a while now, and coming up empty. This "should" be easy, but its not turning out that way!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Did you install TS as a terminal server or this is just the TM that comme with the server. It it is the TM that comme with and you are on the DC it is normal to have administrator right because this TS is for administrative acces only. It is not meant to be a TS. A terminal server goes on a stand alone server not a DC.

their is a group in Windows 2003 that is call remote acces user I think. if you put your user their you’l be OK but you’l still have some applicaiton problemes. Terminal server is not design to run on a DC.
