Ok after running gpresult on one of my terminal servers I noticed that the terminal server GPO wasnt being applied due to Security as in "Filtering: Denied (Security)".

So Im looking and that specific GPO is Linked to the Terminal Server OU (which contains all three TS servers, and it is Filtered to Authenticated Users and Terminal Server Computers and both of those have read and apply rights.

So do I evern need the Terminal Server Computers group listed under Filtering since the GPO is only linked to the Terminal Server OU?  Could that be whats causing this security failure?

So long as the GPO is only linked to the Terminal Server OU you can just filter on Authenticated Users, which is all authenticated users and computers.

Sweet.. So I removed the terminal Server Computers from the filtering list and tonight when they all reboot I'll re-run gpresult and hopefully get better results.
