Am i missing something in group policy

I have spent several hours trying to get my Admin to remote in and out. I have set group policy ONLY on non-admin members, but could I be missing something here?? On another workstation that i haven't touched group policy on, i can log in to my POS computer with Admin and password. When i try to log on with the same credentials I am having problems with itl not letting me in and saying logon attempt fail.

Not entirely certain I understand your scenario, but speaking generically, try removing all the policy settings you put in place and see if it works that way. If so, then put your policies back one by one until you break something. If not, it's probably something simple you overlooked. We all do it.

Hi Graphicsman,

In addition, please try this suggestion:

Click on the Start Orb and type Security Policy Policy, look on the top and click on it. Navigate to Security Settings>Local Policies>User Rights Assignment>In Allow Logon locally and Allow log on thru Remote Desktop Services make sure that you add the User that's trying to remote access.

From your Server's AD Users and Computers, locate the User with Admin permission go to the Members Of Tab and verify that he/she is a Member of Remote Desktop Users and Terminal Server Computers.

Please give us an update.

found the issue. I went to Computer > Manage > Local Users and Groups and Admin was not created there. Administrator was the only one present. I created Admin and was than allowed to remote into. After researching it was said that this was disabled by default but for some reason some of my other workstations it was enabled after a fresh install. It wasn't group policy. Now i need to learn how to give my managers certain access but not full Admin Access levels.

Ok, i have created a Group called "employees" but I cant figure out how to bring it up in group policy to create a local computer policy for the entire group. Any ideas?? I was looking at a tutorial which i created Local Users and Groups under the console root, but when i do add/remove snap in, it creates a new line called Local Computer Policy. How do i create a Local Computer Policy for group "Employees"??

You meant Organizational Unit (OU) and not Group? You have to apply GPO in OU. Inside OU you will add or move Users that will inherit the policies.

By any chance are you the Network Admin? Your Admin should be doing these stuff.

You've mentioned 'group policy' on the subject of your Thread, so I'm thinking of Group Policy Objects (GPO). Are we on the same page?

Is your network in a Domain or Workgroup? What type of Servers do you have?

Group Policy Editor or Local Security Policy
Will either of these allow me to restrict drive access to a single user only? I've tried to restrict drive access with Group Policy Editor but it applies the restriction globally--even to me the administrator. Could anyone let me know if this is possible and how to do it? Much thanks.
