How to lockdown user profile on RDP session

Hi All,

I would like to know if there's a way to lockdown a user profile while they RDP into Server 2008? Whether to do this via GPO or manual setting it up on Default profile? Or if there are other ways?

And if so, can you please provide the steps?

I need some details. Is this a dedicated TS/RDS server? And exactly what are you wanting to "lock down"?

I got it.

To lockdown a user profile on a TS, you would do it via GPO.

1. Create a separate OU (eg. Terminal Server or Service)
2. Create a GPO against the newly created OU
3. Apply policy.
4. Add TS to the OU
5. Log in as the user (must be able to log in to TS)

Hope this helps for anyone who requires access to TS with GPO application.
