No right to sign in through Remote Desktop Services

Edwin Chua 6 Reputation points

Hi, I am having the issues where I am unable to remote to my Domain Controllers.

The error is: To sign in remotely, you need the right to sign in through Remote Desktop Services, etc, etc

I have already done the following:
Am part of the Remote Desktop Users Group
Am part of the domain admin group
Am part of the local admin group
Added to the GPO of "Allow log on through Remote Desktop Services:
Deny log on through Remote Desktop Services is not configured
RDS services are running

Not sure what other stuff can be checked, as these are the common solutions when searching.

    Hi there,

    By default, Windows security settings allow remote RDP logins through Remote Desktop Services (TermService) when:

    -The user account is a member of the local group Remote Desktop Users or Administrators;
    -The user group is allowed to connect in the Local Group Policy parameter Allow the log on through Remote Desktop Services.

    It seems you have done most of the troubleshooting steps to sort this issue out. Try to turn off Hyper-V enhanced session mode and check the result.

    The below thread discusses the same issue and you can try out some troubleshooting steps from this and see if that helps you to sort the Issue.

    I am getting "To sign in remotely, you need the right to sign in through Remote Desktop Services.
