I am logged in to Server 2008 R2 and attempting to logon to a Windows 7 Pro workstation using Remote Desktop. If the account I use to log on to the Win 7 machine has Domain Admin privileges, I can log on successfully. If I use an account lacking Domain Admin privileges, I cannot log in.
But I need to log on without Domain Admin privileges for the tests I need to run.
I tried making the account a member of Remote Desktop Users group, but that had no effect.
I tried running gpedit.msc and adding the account to Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment\Allow logon through Remote Desktop" and running gpudate /force, but still could not logon to the workstation using RDP.
I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to allow remote logon from a non-Domain Admin account.
