I have been troubleshooting a server where terminal server will not work on an SBS 2008 server. I compared security on the registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\RCM and realized that on my other SBS servers in the permissions is "TermService" The icon next to it is the symbol for a group however there is not a group TermService. I suspect this is the service itself. If so, how can I give a service rights to a registry key so I can duplicate this on the server that is not working

hi,
you need to know the name of the service, then, navigate to the key and click EDIT -> Permissions and add the name of the service account and the permissions required.

I don't see how you can add a service there, just user, groups or computers

Hi ajdratch,
i meant adding the service account (the account that the service is currently using to run) not the service itself.

That did not help. How is it that a service is listed in the permissions on that key. There must be a way to give a service permissions to a key

Thanks

I contacted Microsoft. They were able to give the service the permissions on the registry key by using a program SubInACL. Once they did this, terminal server was working again
