Hello Experts,
I have to setup certain rights for some users, the environment is TS 2008 R2.

Please find attached Excel List for Rights Matrix... there are certain things which I have abbreviated with ABC & XYZ, however you can just consider them to be as some program or location.



Regards,
A

What is the problem? Can you give me a little more information?

What I think you are trying to do is apply different GPOs to different users on a Terminal Server, is this correct?

You should use GPO Loopback processing to set these GPOs to be applied to the Users when they are logged into the TS server. This allows you to apply User configuration GPOs to only a certain computer.

You then want to deny GPOs for Computer GPOs for users you don't want the GPOs applied too

Take a look at the links get a better understanding of loopback processing.

Do you know about security filtering gpos?

You will need to security filter in the GPOs you don't want to be applied to certain users.

When configuring GPOs like the detailed configuration you want testing is a big part and will take time.

Once you have read the links let me know what questions you have this will allow me to better help you if you understand the concept which in turn allow you to better ask questions on information you don't understand. We can build on this from there. Poking around GPOs is the only way you will find exactly what you want and how you want to apply the security settins

Should work fairly easy GPO you are just denying Read access which is file security.

You can do the same thing by going to the Icon and going to properties and denying Read Access
