Hello all,

I am looking for some help in setting up my first GPO. I have three users who I want to have remote access (already setup and licensed the TS) and when they login they will see only the start button (to log off) and the program they are going to use.

I have installed the GPO mmc and can see all the choices (ALOT of choices...lol) and I would like help simplifying my needs.

Do I create a new OU and create the users under that? Then link the GPO to that?

I have one additional problem. Something I am missing. I add the user to the Remote Desktop Users group and take them out of the administrators group and can't remote in. I have tried this with all users. It’s has to be a setting I am missing.

Create a "group" inside a new OU and place your policy on that OU.

>> MYcorp.local
          >> OU : Employees    || Corperate GPO settings
                      >  UserObject
                      >  UserObject
          >> OU : Special GPO  || Additional GPO settings
                       >>  GroupObj
                                   > User membership...

I got it worked out this way.

*** New OU
*** New GPO for that OU
*** Denied everything on Start Menu and Desktop
*** Allowed logoff
*** Placed shortcut to program in Desktop Folder (as admin of course)
*** Deleted Programs folders in start menu in Docs \ Settings.
*** User cannot chage password.

It worked out leaving access only to that program and logoff and no access (or even view) to anything else.

Your were a very big help...Thank you again.
