Disable "Disconnect" from Remote Desktop

We have a Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Terminal Server.

We want to force users to use the "Log Off" option rather that ticking the "X" at the top of the screen, or disconnecting.

Is there a way we can do this via/ Group Policy?

Also can you prevent users from right clicking the RDP session on their local PC and clicking "Close"?

In terminal services manager right clock on TVP-rdp select properties and you can tell terminal services how to deal with disconnected sessions so they don't get jogged on your licenses

Well our goal is to prevent users from incorrectly disconnecting thus leaving printer sessions active and such. We wan tto try and force users to use the log off button.

If its only for once server, you can do this on "Terminal service Configuration" MMC Snapin.

Go to Start > Program files > Administrative Tools > TS Configuration >
Select Session

Check "Override user settings"

Select the time duration you need to have before ending an disconnected session.
(I prefer to make 5mins atlest - In case of a network or bandwidth issue, this will give 5mins time in case if we are able to get reconnected)

Shabarinath,

I may need to go with your method.

Demazter,

That option would work under the start menu, but that would still give the user the option to hit the X at the top of the RDP client.

I don't think you can stop them doing that as it's just like any other app on the client but the TCP-rdp settings I mentioned in my first post would help this situation

Even though we couldn't disable the actual "X", setting a disconnect option should work.
