Upgrading active directory to 2008 R2, we are decommisioning obviously the old DCs.  Helpline needs to use a new set of tools off the new DCs so we made a terminal server for them and made them a custom snapin with all the MMC tools that they need.  We don't want them to log on to the server, we want them to use the RemoteApp that we set up for them.  The catch....The need to copy and paste and they can not.  

Have tried this... RemoteApp clipboard redirection:  Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Remote Desktop Services \ Remote Desktop Session Hosts \ Device and Resource Redirection \ Do not allow clipboard redirection.  Disabled this GPO setting but still no go.

Yes it does work if we RDP into the terminal server but they and we don't want them to do this.

You guys and girls rock,

Thanks

You don't mention what version of Windows your users are using but are you using Remote Desktop Connection 7.0 ?

Found the answer thanks for responses.  It was a simple.

-From RemoteApp manager click Change from RDP Settings

-From the common RDP Settings TAB, check Clipboard then apply

This should do it though some may think you may have to recreate RDP shortcut but I have the opposite to be the case.

 

RPDCLIP.exe was running though I also restarted it to verify.

interesting to note: if you edit the rdp shortcut in notepad you should see this redirectclipboard:i:1, 0 if it is not enabled

Thanks Again *
