Add current logged on user to remote desktop users

Hi Experts,
We are migrating to Windows 7 Enterprise with 1200 machines on Active Directory 2008 native.
I want every logged on user to be added to remote desktop users on the machine they are logging on to.
I do not want to add all users to remote desktop users on all machines, just the machine they log on to.
Is there any way to achieve this?
Thanks for your replies!

yes that would be correct, as firewolf suggested above you may wish to investigate VNC as it is a far easier way for remote support and if needs be you could use PushVNC which installs and removes itself on its own.

it can be done via command prompt, (so could be used in a batch file)

net localgroup "Remote Desktop Users" %userdomain%\%username% /Add

The biggest issue with Remote Desktop is that you take over the Users session, and you need their password

It's very worthwhile switching to UltraVNC (it's free) as you can shadow the users desktop while they can still see it, and you use your DA credentials

It's just a matter of installing UltraVNC on all workstations

If you have a common server, create a common domain as a gateway and connect other computers through this domain. And give a common name with numbers to all other computers and connect them with your server computer domain.
So that all the computers will be displayed in the server computer.

Then go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Remote Desktop Connection

Now choose Experience Tab & Select LAN (10 Mbps or higher ) in the Drop down menu.
Now choose Advanced Tab & Click Settings. And then Give the Server name which you have created. Change the settings which is suitable for you.

Thank you
