Hello everyone,

I have installed Terminal server on Windows 2003 server (member server) in application mode.

I have created users on the terminal server itself (local users) and dont want to use AD Group Policies as the users who will connect to this server are not part of my domain.

I want to know if their is a way to restrict user access to:-
(*) local disk .... specific folders only
(*) setting up the default home directory & profile path

I tried giving access using the local group policy object but it restricts access to even the administrator whereas i would like to restrict access to only specific users.

Please advise.
