I set up a policy to hide local drives for users.  I want this to apply for whatever machine they login to.  Specifically it needs to apply when they Terminal into a 2008 box.

This policy along with the restrict access to drive policy work perfectly well on the windows XP box and I assume server 2003 TS if they had one.

It does not work on server 2008 that I can see.  Whenever I log in the drives are still there not hidden at all.  I saw other people with this problem but have not found a solution.
