How do you change screen resolution in terminal server session?

I have a Windows Server 2003 acting as a terinal server.  I need to change some of the user's screen resolution when they log on to the terminal server.  They are connecting using WYSE terminals.  I have changed the resolution on the WYSE terminal but the screen resolution remains the same.  Is there something locking it down in goup policy, etc...

That is a RDP client option and is part of the default or saved remote desktop connection template.  This would need changed on the machines, not the server.

I have changed it in the WYSE terminals but the same resolution comes up when we log back in.  We want 1024 x 768 but we get 800 x 600

Is it possible to connect to server console and look at display settings ?  What resolution is set there ?
With other client aka. RDP from XP, did you get 1024 x 768 ?

I think only colour depth can be set in Group Policy, not resolution which is taken from the client.

I don't know the Wyse sytem, but does it have a resolution for the terminal and maybe a different one for the RDP connection as per http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc776141.aspx

I think that http:#22790798 answered the question.  Although maybe it wasn't QUITE clear enough.

So I will clarify now that the resolution is set in the Remote Desktop Client SOFTWARE, not in the display settings of the client PC.  On each xp machine, there will be a default.rdp which stores the default values, but if the connection is saved it can be modified as well.

Indeed... and the MS confirmation of that is in the link posted in #22800894
