We recently added another server to our domain and we are trying to enable RDP on the new server.  When we try and check the box to enable RDP it warns us that we need to disable offline files.  When we try the box for offline files is checked but also grayed out.  We don not have anything in GP set up for Offline files.  How do we disable offline files so we can enable RDP?

You must be logged on as an administrator to disable offline files.

Try logging on as a local administrator if you are already logging on as an AD administrator.

I have tried the registry changes and it is still grayed out and will not let me uncheck the box.  I tried as the domain admin and a local admin account with the same outcome.

Type GPedit.msc
Open Computer Configuration -> Administrative template ->Network -> Offline Files
and same for user configuration and then check if "prohibit user configuration of offline files" is enabled
