I have an sbs2k8 server with owa/sql etc.  I got OWA up and running and if I type /remote I can login to RWW but the RDP is not an action once logged in, only check email and internal website.  How can I get the "connect to my computer" option and remove the website option?

You have to manually assign to which computers users can log on to. To do so go to the SBS console | Users and Groups | Users | user properties | Computers | highlight a users and below Check "can remotely access this computer"
Similar options exist under the computer tab and can be configured there as well.

Learn to use the wizards with SBS! Too many very qualified IT folk think the wizards are not necessary, but they are crucial with SBS. There are many documented cases here on EE where folk, especially with SBS 2003, have had to rebuild the server by not using them.
Thanks rhwimmers.
Cheers!

Yikes...put me in that category...I just realized (after closing the thread) in that users and groups tab only a handful of users are there and my user is not.  I tried to right click and add new user and get "the windows sbs console feature is not setup correctly"

Can you locate the users in active directory and move them to the "MyBusiness\Users\SBSUsers" OU? They should show up after doing so.
