Unable to backup win2003 if BESA has been disabled to login via RDP

This issue has been solved. See solution.
We have a requirement that BESA (Backup exec service account) in our active directory and it should not be able to login onto windows using remote desktop. We have disabled this feature from Group Policy for "Allow log on through Terminal Services". But they should be able to run backups using same account.
a. User A BESA not a domain admin
b. User B will be new BESA in future will not be a domain admin
BackupExec 2010R2 sp1 installed on windows 2008 r2
User A is able to currently run the backup job and able to login windows over remote desktop session. User B is not able to login windows using Remote desktop. User B is able to backup the windows2008 servers even if it cannot login to windows via remote desktop. But User B is not even able to pass credentials under backup job for win2003 servers and therefore it is not able to backup win2003 server. Can anyone suggest which permission is needed for win2003 because using the same User B account I am able backup win2008 servers even if I am not able to login via RDP.
