W2K8 Std server, Remote Desktop role added. There are three levels of connections, 1) Don't allow, 2) Allow Connections for computers running any version .. and 3) Allow connections with Network Level Authentication (more secure).  My server defaults to the NLA.  I don't want this level as it prohibits my primary users from remoting into their application server.  The server defaults to NLA because of a local group policy.  Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Security.  The last setting is: Require user authentication for remote connections by using Network Level Authentication.  If I Disable or Not configure this setting, upon server reboot, it's enabled.  This prohibits my users from accessing the desktop of the server.  This server has 5 network GPO's applied to it, all of those GPO's has this setting as Not configured.  I don't know where, upon server restart, this setting is enabled from.  Putting a hack on a client PC is not a fix for us.  We have 4 other servers in this OU all setup by the same person this is not an issue on any of the other 4 servers.  
This particular Local Computer Policy will not hold the setting I choose.

Thanks Experts

Is this server a DC?  If it is, check the Default Domain Controller Policy.

You can always run GPRESULT /v on that server and output it to a text file.  The text file should contain all the policies that applied to it and what settings can from where.

Thanks Netman66,
Nope not a DC, simple member server.  I will run GPRESULT and see what I get.

What if you disable it in a network GPO?

I have set the Network GPO to disabled.  I will let that replication go through then test.  Also when the GPO is in effect my options are not available from the Remote tab...that is usually where I see that the GPO is in effect.  I can't make any changes. :(

Thanks Netman66 I will let you know the result.

Tough one.  It's a MSFT thing.  Funny how disabling enables when Not Configured is supposed to do the same thing.  All 500 points Netman66.

Actually, registry settings don't revert when simply placed back into Not Defined, you have to "toggle" it to the opposite, let it apply and then set to Not Defined.  Had I realized that is what was happening based on your explanation I would have offered that up first.

Glad to help.

Thanks!
