Do you know if there was a security template or anything locking down the
system applied?

You can run security configuration and analysis to determine the current
system security settings, and reset any default settings that have been
changed by using this tool as well:

It appears this is most likely some type of permission problem on the
machine, if you have another terminal server that works compare permissions
on the two and see if that makes a difference.

Thank you!
