Windows Server 2008 R2 Login error

I created a user account and made it member of “Users” group for some test purpose but when i try to login to the server received the following error message:
‘You cannot log on because the logon method you are using is not allowed on this computer. Please contact your network administrator for more information’

 

Solution: Group Policy’ “Allow log on locally” was not setup to allow users or domain users. To setup allow users or domain users to logon the computer or domain, you need to add the users or domain users to the “Allow log on locally”. Please follow these steps to add the users.

1. Run gpedit.msc.
2. Expand Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies
3. Click on User Rights Assignment
4. Ensure that “Allow log on locally” includes Administrators, Backup Operators, Domain Users or Users.

Also, verify Group Policy “Deny log on locally”  was setup to deny users or domain users. To setup allow users or domain users to logon the computer or domain locally, “Deny log on locally” should be empty or no users or domain users in the list. Please follow these steps to remove the users or domain users from the “Deny log on locally”.

1. Run gpedit.msc.
2. Expand Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies
3. Click on User Rights Assignment
4. Ensure that “Deny log on locally” is empty.
