Server 2008, Remote Desktop Services
Posted on 2010-11-17
I have a brand new Server 2008 Enterprise server up and running. Of course I remote in as Administrator and work the server when it has problems. Now I has a user, a special user, who needs to remote in using her username and password and have her desktop like the one she has when she's in the office. In other words, she wants to log in from home into the server, and use it like a terminal server.
This user is in the admin group and she can log in. Under her settings in AD, on the Remote Desktop Services Profile tab, I set her profile to her roaming profile and I set her H: drive to her userdata folder. It "appears" to be set up correctly. However, when I log in as her, all I get is the recycle bin. I do not get her desktop items, her H: drive or anything.
I did go into the Remote Desktop Services Configuration and turned off the option to limit the number of connections. So, I can log in as an administrator and I can log in as my user, it's just my user is not getting her desktop and her documents.
