SBS 2003 SP1 - GPO related to terminal services...

Hi All,
In an SBS 2003 network with a member server as a Terminal Server (W2k3 R2), I need assistance in creating a GPO that will allow the users to access the TS via RDP from their PCs, but not access the SBS via RDP as a 'side-effect'.  The only 2 machine in the SBS domain are the SBS box itself and the TS box.  Also, ISA 2004 SP2 is installed on the SBS box.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Terry

Unless you have changed your existing GPO's then users will be denied access to logging on to the SBS server anyway.

Adding a user to the remote users group does not allow them to access the SBS Remote Desktop...

That's it. I had not change any GPOs in this context, but I did have users inadvertently assigned to the "Remote Operators" group which was the culprit.  I've removed users from that group and resolved the issue.

Thanks for the pointer!
