Logoff a selected Terminal Services user.

I need to give a user the ability to logoff Terminal Services 2003 users.  (This will allow them to then perform a file maintenance process in an application.)   When I attempt this in the Terminal Services Manager I get an error: "Session (ID #) reset failed (Error 5 - access is denied)."  The logoff only succeeds if I am logged in as Administrator.  How do I give this user the ability to select and logoff a TS user?

Add his account to the administrators group on the terminalserver.
Taken from techRepublic.


Start/Programs/Administrative Tools/Terminal Services Configuration.

Goto the properties for your RDP connection/ Permissions tab.
Create a group for your helpdesk users (domain preferably otherwise local) add this group. Click on the advanced permission tab and give them whatever rights they need.

Unfortunately, you'll have to repeat this process for all your servers. There are no GPO components or command line tools to do this.
