Dear all,
I am the domain administrator in my company. I have found that some of our xp workstations remote desktop function is off. How can I remotely enable the remote desktop services?

1. Group Policy?
2. sc command?
3. Or any other method.

Best regards,
Wataw

regedit:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server

Open in new window


Under the Terminal Server key, you'll find a REG_DWORD value named fDenyTSConnection. Double-click on that value to open the Edit DWORD Value box and change the value data from 1 (Remote Desktop disabled) to 0 (Remote Desktop enabled), as in Figure 6 below.

shutdown -m \\yourserver -r

You can alo perform this action from a GPO. Apply this to the OU where your computers are then either reboot or wait for the policy to refresh.

In the Group Policy editor, click to expand Computer Configuration, click to expand Administrative Templates, click to expand Windows Components, and then click to expand Terminal Services.
Double-click the Allow users to connect remotely using Terminal Services policy.
Set the policy to Enabled, and then click OK.
You can also use the following procedure to disable Remote Desktop; however, if you use the preceding procedure, the following configuration is overridden:
Right-click My Computer and click Properties.
Click the Remote tab.
In the Remote Desktop section, click to clear Allow users to connect remotely to this computer, and then click OK.
