Lock Down Terminal Services

Hey All,

   Just wondering if there is a way to lock down 2003 terminal services without using Active Directory? When the user logs on I don't want them to be able to shutdown the server only log off. I also don't need them going to the control panel either. Thanks in advance

unfortunately you are stuck in a not so great position :) You can do most of what you can do with GPO through the local policy on the machine (GPEDIT.MSC) but its a rat to try and separate these policies from the admin
