Remote Desktop to server for non Domain Admin


Lee Messenger

Domain Admin users to be able to connect to using Remote Desktop. I would
the connection to be made to the Console (session 0) so they were connected
as if they were sitting at the server.

I have enabled remote desktop, given the user(s) access, given them full
permissions in TS Configuration, however, when they try to connect, it says
"You do not have access to logon to this session"

Any suggestions ?
