How to prevent users from saving to desktop on the Terminal server but allowing them the use of shortcuts on the terminal server desktop? is there a way to do it via GPO?

Please advise.

How about using folder redirection for "Desktop" and make the folder read only ?

Everybody is setup with Remote Desktop Services User Profile. I did setup to read. However, I got "Active Directory Users and Computers Access Denied", "C:TSusers\helpdesk.V2\Desktop\desktop.ini access denied".

This appears to have some of your symptoms

look at method 3


For the "Active Directory Users and Computers Access Denied"

Can you open mmc and then add/remove snap-in ?  or browse to "c:\windows\system32\dsa.msc" and right click properties and make sure that it's not set to open with "Unknown application".

You may also need to check the same with mmc.exe.
