I would like to make sure that a client computer is setup for Remote Access.  I think I saw someone do this but I can't recall the procedure/requirements.

If I am logged in as the domain admin, and the domain admin is a member of the client computer administrative group.  Is there a way I can get into the computer through AD computers and modify settings?  I am not tallking about Remote Desktop, but rather, setting them up for remote desktop.

Please let advise me on the steps and requirements to do this.

Thanks.

You would follow the steps here:

Then once the registry setting is changed reboot the machine remotely with:

shutdown -r -m \\<machinename>

and once it restarts you can access with RDP 8)

Hope this helps!

do it via group policy, its more efficient and will affect any computers under it

computer config - admin templates - windows components - Terminal services - allow users to connect remotely using terminal services (E)

Either way it will still take a reboot...  And any policy problems will result in it not being set...

ah for sure, i don't mean to downgrade your idea, just if its multiple machines its probably more efficient for policy, and easier to undo

I don't feel that you downgraded my idea.  The site is about learning.  I like to tell someone what a group policy actually sets at the client.  That way if for some reason AD is malfunctioning or there is a policy application problem they will not be without a method of accomplishing the goal.  For multiple machines you are correct in your explaination.
