Windows 2008 TS Group Policy Local Policy default user configuration
Posted on 2011-02-11
Here is the scenario: I have a 2008 R2 Terminal Server. I create all the GPO's I want so as to lock things down/control access/configure the desktop. I then create a new user but the new user seems to be configured differently than what I thought I had specified in the GPO. A simple example is that the new user gets Outlook Express on their desktop and I subsequently have to get rid of it. They may be able to run Powershell. It seems that these items come from the local policy of the TS server itself. What do I have to do to make it so that the users I create are based on a default user that is exactly the way I want it to be so that all users I create have just the desktop/rights I want them to have?
Is this what Group Preferences can remedy?
Again I have a 'perfect' new user in mind and I want all new users to get that exact same template.
