Loop back processing applied to security group

Posted on 2009-04-08

I have loop back processing working on a 2008 terminal server.  When the gpo is applied to authenticated users it works and drives are hidden.  I only want to apply to policy to a particular security group. However, when I do this, the part of the policy that hides the drives no longer is applied.  I can see this in group policy results and in actuality.

The permissions for the GPO are the same for Authenticated users and the Security group I created.

you mean you are removing "apply group policy settings' for "Authenticated users" and adding it to that security group ?


If so try adding the computer accounts they are logging on to in that security group and try again it will work

I mean, I removed "authenticated users" from the Security filtering and added a different security group.  I assumed then that the policy would only apply to that security group rather than all authenticated users.

All the users log into 1 computer, the Terminal server.  You mean add the terminal server to that security group?  If you meant that, I tried it, but still have the same problem.

Basically, I want all of the drives hidden on the terminal server when users log into it.  I do not want the drives hidden when administrators log into the server.
