Cannot run executable from W2003 Server after joining domain

I am setting up a W2003 Server as a Terminal Server that accesses a financial
system on another file server. Everything works fine as long as the W2003/TS
is not a member of the domain, but after joining the domain I can no longer
run the executable on the file server required to setup users on TS -
receiving a "do not have required permissions" error. Removing the server
from the domain restores the ability to run the .EXE setup file.

This is a very small network with just two servers.

Server 1: 2003 File Server, SQL Server, and domain controller (primary).
Server 2: 2003 Server and Terminal Server.

The TS is used by users in a remote building who need access to the
Financial App.

I connected my laptop to the domain and was able to run the executable using
the same domain account as the one that did not work when the 2003/TS server
was added to the domain. I suspect some type of Security Policy is preventing
executable access.

Any help appreciated.
