GPO Loopback Settings

I need to make a couple GPO's that will affect the way a user views the computer on a Terminal Server.  5 users need certain applications to load and 10 need other applications to load, each group should not be able to see the others applications.

I have made an new OU called Terminal Services and created a GPO called SS TermServ. I enabled the Loopback feature plus many other policies.  When the user logs into the Terminal Server - nothing is applied.   In the security Filtering I added one user (for testing purposes)

How should I apply this GPO? I will also need another GPO to apply to other users in a group so I dont think I can add it to the computer itself.

Any help would be appreciated.

in the security filtering you added the user, you also need to add the computer. (loopback is a computer setting)

Do that and see if the settings apply to the test user.

Thanks

I added the computer and nothing happens.

Is the GPO only supposed to appear in the Terminal Services OU?  Do I need any other settings set such as Link Enabled??

Ok, that did work, but when I added the computer it affected ALL users, not just the one. I need it to affect only certain users.

Try creating two GPOs

One enabling loopback for that box
The second with the user settings - Filter that for your test user

Thanks, that worked by adding the Loopback as another GPO.
