Hey all,

I'm trying to add the "remote desktop users" group to a computer, so that we can access that machine remotely.

Every time I try to locate that specific "Remote Desktop Users" inside my build in group on the server, it doesn't appear.

I know its there b/c I have gone to the server and located the group.

Any reasons why this happening.

Hi dakeys,

Remote Desktop Users is a LOCAL security group on each workstation.  It's not on your server.

There is a Remote Web Workplace Users group on the server if that's what you are refereing to.  But which machine are you trying to access remotely?

I thought there was a group that i can add on the server that would allow everyone access to any machine on the network.

Access to a specific machine is controlled by that machines local security policy.  Unless you manually add the Domain Users group to the Local Administrators Group of each machine... which is NOT recommended.
