From the mailbox today a question about RDP and non admin…
I can RDP from an external network to the SBS2003 SP1 server without a
problem. From the server I will go to the computer (Server Manager) or
the run command line to connect to any XP computer on the network. At
this point I can connect to any workstation using the Domain Admin
account, however after logging off and trying to connect again with a non-
admin user it displays â€œyou do not have access to logon to this
sessionâ€. If I reboot the workstation and login first with the non-admin
user it works fine
Logoff and login with the admin user OK. Logoff as
admin and logging again with the non-admin and the same error displays.
What you have to do is make sure that when you are RDPing as admin ..that you remember to "logout" and not just close the session that we are just used to doing. Once the Admin does a true log out..then the non admin will be able to log in.
I can RWW with non admin account as long as the account as Remote Desktop user rights.. and I'm not talking about on the server mind you..but on the workstation itself. Go into control panel, then user, and make that non admin a remote desktop user so RWW will work like a champ ….even without administrator rights on the desktop.
