Azure VM(Domain Controller) RDP Error

Copper Contributor

Hi All,

When I tried to do RDP VM in Azure I got below error message.

The connection was denied because the user account is not authorized for remote login

The VM is Domain Controller. Does DC have separate credentials ?

And also does the firewall or RDP Settings of VM not allowing me to do connection ? 

Any help !!

Can you verify that your account exists in the Remote Desktop Users group on the DC from a remote computer?


If not you can try to use the Computer Management snap-in to remotely add your account to the group from another computer.


Can you please give any link or steps how to do this...
