I have users logging into a terminal server, we are using our file/print server, just so they can test whether or not terminal services is going to work for us. I do not want these users to be able to access active directory, system files, etc. I have created a group, terminalclients, added the terminal users to it, set permissions to logon locally, given this group permission in Terminal Connections. I would like to restrict this group. How do I do this?

Thanks,
Diane

This is not a fast solution. I would have recomended finding another box for testing any resonible computer will work for testing. You will have to create policies to restrict access. I dont usually do testing on a production box.

not clear what you mean by "restrict this group"  It will only have access to those resources to which you grant it...at whatever level of access you specify.......can you clarify?

Right now he is able to go into active directory and delete a user. He is also able to go into the system files. I want to restrict him from access these and other area's of my server. I'm not sure how to do this. 20LILY00 mentioned policies, is this the recommended way of restricting users while on a terminal server?  If so, please tell me how to set this up, if not please tell me the correct way.

Thanks,
Diane

He can only delete AD users if he has Domain Admin, or Account admin rights....make sure those users are not in those groups......

JConchie is correct...  :)

the Users are in Groups , so the restrictions are what groups are the users assigned to?

that will ultimately fix your problem...

hope that helps
