Remote Desktop Users


I have an Active Directory Server in a test environment. The server currently acts only as a DHCP and DNS server in our production environment.

I have configured a number of users ready to start the process of policy modeling. A certain number of users need to be able to remote desktop onto a number of servers that are participating in the active directory environment.

The issue I have is this. I have a test remote user called ruser. This user is a member of the bultin Remote Desktop Users security group.

I have a GPO linked to an OU that permits logon through terminal services to any machine in that OU. I have run the Model Report and the result suggests that the machine is picking up the GPO and allowing log on through terminal services but the User is not picking up the Remote Desktop Users security group.

Any suggestions?

Know the user is not a member of a group that contains the Remote Desktop Users security group. The user is just a member of that group. i.e. if you look a user properties and member of then Remote Desktop Users is there. Similarly if you look at the Remote Desktop Users group and look at members, you see the use listed.

If the user is a member of a group that contains the Remote Desktop Users security group then it is considered a member de-facto and won't need to explicitly show it in that group.
