I just migrated from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011. I am a domain admin, On the RWA page I have three computers listed, the new server, the old server and one XP workstation.  I am trying to figure out what is unique about that one workstation that makes it show up on the main screen for all domain admins. All other workstations are listed only if I click on Connect to more computers.

In the SBS Console under the Computers list you can double click on the computer and see which users have remote access or Local Admin rights.

That is where the setting is made so that users that have permissions to a system can access via RWA.

BTW, you can do the same under Users in the SBS Console to assign users to specific computers.

As domain admin I have access to all computers. What I can't figure out is why this one XP computer shows up on the main screen under servers for all domain admins.  It should be listed with all the other workstations

AFAICT, the list shown in RWA acts like an MRU list in Windows or Office where the most frequently accessed computers will be shown in the list on the portal page.

The whole list and options for RDP are available when accessing the full list.
