Can I use a GPO to rollout a RDP shortcut to selceted uses desktops?

Posted on 2010-01-06

The infrastructure is a 2003 domain with a TS running 2003 - I did want to configure single sign on too but our clients dont necessarily have XP SP3 so was told this isn't possible? But I really wanted to know whether I could rollout the shortcut via policy or whether it would need a .vbs and GPO combo. Please help!

Thanks in advance

    It looks like you can use active desktop (even though people were against it)

    If not there are some sample scripts in there.
