Hi all

A simple question please.
I have a windows 2003 DC. We have installed a new Windows 2008 R2 joined it on the domain and configured it as a Terminal Server.

I have added the necessary users to the remote desktop users group on windows 2008 and also to the allow logon through terminal services group in the AD Group policy of windows 2003 DC. Made gpupdate /force but when i go to local security policy settings of Win2008 Terminal server i dont see the changes i made on the Group Policy of win2003 DC.

I believe this is the reason i am getting the usual "To log on to this remote computer you need to be granted the allow logon thorugh terminal services..."

Do i need to download this KB943729 on the win2003 DC to accomplish updating group policy changes on the win2008 R2?

Any hints?

Thanks

Yes, you need to install the Client Side extensions for any 2003/XP clients to be able to understand the new format(ADMX)
