The Remote Desktop Users group on an RD Session Host server is used to give users and groups permission to remotely connect to an RD Session Host server.

You can add users and groups to the Remote Desktop Users group in the following ways:

Local Users and Groups snap-in


Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in, if the RD Session Host server is installed on a domain controller


On the Remote tab in the System Properties dialog box on an RD Session Host server


You can use the following procedure to add users and groups to the Remote Desktop Users group by using the Remote tab in the System Properties dialog box on an RD Session Host server.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the RD Session Host server that you plan to configure, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

To add users and groups to the Remote Desktop Users group by using the Remote tab
Start the System tool. To start the System tool, click Start, click Run, type control system and then click OK.

Under Tasks, click Remote settings.

In the System Properties dialog box, on the Remote tab, click Select Users. Add the users or groups that need to connect to the RD Session Host server by using Remote Desktop. The users and groups that you add are added to the Remote Desktop Users group.
