We have about 70 or 80 users connecting to terminal servers via an MPLS system, so the domain is relatively large, physically speaking. We're relocating  the Terminal Servers to our Colo facilty, so all of our users current RDP icon's / configurations will be rendered useless. Is there a way to push out the new RDP config settings, along with a new icon to each users desktop via GP or Active Directory?

Here's the script I use:

IF EXIST C:\terminal.txt EXIT  ***TO PREVENT THE RDP ICON ON THE TERMINAL SERVER***
IF EXIST "%homepath%\desktop\Remote Access.rdp" EXIT
xcopy "\\server.domain.local\clientapps\Remote Access.rdp" "%homepath%\desktop\" /d /c /y

Set this script up with Group Policy.  If it doesn't exist, it will copy.  Edit the single RDP file on the server and it will be pushed at login.
