Giving users permission to access the terminal server
By default, on Windows Server 2003 operating systems, members of the
Administrators and Remote Desktop Users groups can use Terminal Services
connections to connect to a remote computer. The Remote Desktop Users group
is not populated by default, so you must decide which users and groups
should have permission to log on remotely, and then manually add them to
this group.

Important

You must use the Remote Desktop Users group to grant selected users and
groups the necessary permission to make Terminal Services connections to
remote computers.
Membership in the Remote Desktop Users group does not also put the user into
the local Users group. Depending on the contents of your local Users group,
you might need to add the user to that group also.
Before you give users permission to access the terminal server, you must:

Check the membership of the Administrators group to ensure that you know who
has access to the terminal server.
Decide which users should have permission to access the terminal server.
Determine which users must also be added to the local Users group.
The following table shows the steps you must take to give users permission
to access the terminal server.

Task Comments
Add users to the Remote Desktop Users group.  Open Computer Management
(Local), and in the console tree, click Local Users and Groups. In the
details pane, double-click the Groups folder, double-click Remote Desktop
Users, and then click Add. In the Select Users dialog box, click Locations
to specify the search location. To specify the types of objects that you
want to search for, click Object Types. In this case, you want to search for
Users or Groups. Type the name that you want to add in the Enter the object
names to select (examples) box, and then click Check Names. When the name is
located, click OK.
Note

To open Computer Management, click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click Performance and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then
double-click Computer Management.

Add users to the local Users group, if they are not already members. Open
Computer Management (Local), and in the console tree, click Local Users and
Groups. In the details pane, double-click the Groups folder, double-click
Users, and then click Add. In the Select Users dialog box, click Locations
to specify the search location. To specify the types of objects that you
want to search for, click Object Types. In this case, you want to search for
Users or Groups. Type the name that you want to add in the Enter the object
names to select (examples) box, and then click Check Names. When the name is
located, click OK.
Note

To open Computer Management, click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click Performance and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then
double-click Computer Management

Subject: [THIN] licensed logon limit


I'm running MPS 3.0 on Windows 2003. I have my TS license server activated
and have added the CALs, my citrix license server is up and licenses have
been installed.

When regular domain users connect they get an error "licensed logon limit",
then another pop up behind it saying "the terminal server has exceeded the
maximum number of allowed connections". This happens when connecting to
published apps and direct connetions to the server. Domain Admins can run
everything just fine.

Any ideas?

What's keeping you from getting more from your terminal servers? Did you
know, in most cases, CPU Utilization IS NOT the single biggest
constraint to scaling up?! Get this free white paper to understand the
real constraints & how to overcome them. SAVE MONEY by scaling-up rather
than buying more servers.
