This is simple to solve. In the windows server, you have to log on with administrative rights or u can use the admin account, as you prefer. Then, go to users and computers or users on active directory into the server and reach the user account with this problem. Choose the right "permit the user logon interactively on this server". That´s it. Let me know if you need some help. Maybe this article would help. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/289289#LetMeFixItMyselfAlways
