Windows 2008 Server - Remote Desktops & Virtual Workers
Posted on 2011-02-26
We want to set up a dedicated server for virtual workers to log in and use a remote desktop. We have both licenses of Windows 2008 Server Standard and Windows 2008 Server Enterprise. I need to check to see if we have a terminal server license, so we may need to add that on.
My skills end at 2000/2003 Server, so 2008 is beyond my experience.
But just for now - how do I go about configuring this so:
1 - I can create user accounts (do I need Active Directory just for this?)
2 - Each user logs in to their own environment (their own "root folder" for MyDocuments, etc.)
3 - They can use the programs already installed
4 - They can't get into each other's files. Their direct access is limited to their dedicated folders
5 - I can grant them access to specific shared directories.
