We currently have a customer that is running terminal services in an enviroment of about 10 users. They contacted us however stating that they needed one of their users to be able to write to CD/DVD on the server directly. Upon attempting this it seems that only the administrator accounts are able to do this no matter what I enable or disable in the GPO. Is there something Im missing in the GPO or is this a hard set security function?

Note: I have also gone through the Local Security Policy to no avail as well.

Is this CD writer on a DC? If so did you check the domain controllers policy? If not did you check the domain policy?

Yes this drive is located on the DC. I have been through both and didnt see anything other than policies related to restricting usage of the drive. However these policies state that unconfigured they will allow access. I went a step further and disabled the policies that show they would restrict function in any way to the recording device. There is even a policy directly related to restricting CD writing however by default it isnt set to block function, however anything like this has been disabled just for good measure in the troubleshooting process. I have also attempted to add this user to the backup operators group which did not reolve the issue. There must be something Im missing either in the GP or in the LP.

How about the share permissions on the CD writer? Did you grant that user full control?

I guess I could create a share but remember the user is accessing this locally through Terminal Services.
