I have just built a new 2008 R2 box with a domain controller and also have the terminal services role set up. I have 3 accounts in there; first one is default administrator, another account named admin1 through domain admin rights and last one is user1 account. All accounts worked with no troubles but currently it looks my user1 account is not working and locked out. Now I am getting the following error message. I have attached it in the below.
It may be noted that the account is not disabled; also I don’t know why this is occurring when it used to work well.
You cannot log on because the logon method you are using is not allowed on this computer. Please see you network administrator for more information
Please help. Thanks.
Unable to log on to user account in 2008 R2 Box
You must try below the steps if you are currently using Windows Operating System. This will enable you to bypass the error message that you are receiving: “You cannot log on because the logon method you are using is not allowed on this computer. Please see your network administrator for more information”. Afterwards, you can be able to login successfully to your user1 account:
Click on the Windows button
Type gpedit.msc on the Search box and press Enter
Accept the received elevation dialog
Expand the path Windows SettingsSecurity SettingsLocal Policies
Choose the User Rights Assignment
The “Deny Log On Locally” must be empty
The “Allow Log On Locally” must include all of your accounts (which includes administrators, defaults, user1, and admin1)
