Hello Experts!
I'm working with an user that is trying to access his computers thru Remote Web Workplace.  He gets the message, "No computers are available".  But if a different user logs in, they can see all the computers at the site.

Is there something wrong with the way his account was setup or his profile?

Unless the user is a domain admin, you must assign computers to them.  You can do this via the SBS console.  

Go to the "Users and Groups" tab in the SBS Console, select the user you want to modify, and open their Properties.  In the user properties window, go to the "Computers" section to assign workstations that are available for the user to log into.

Great, thank you.  That was the piece I was missing.  I'm not used to how SBS has things setup.  I appreciate the info.
