Unfortunately the Microsoft policy applies color depth setting at the machine level. Meaning all users connecting to the server the policy is applied too would be limited to that color depth set in the GPO.

you can create several GPO and create OU based on the subnet then link required GPO to its subnet

I understand you can put servers in sites, but can you put thin client workstations in a site?

i.e.  i have 4 locations that use thin clients to access 3 terminal servers.  I want to set it to where the local users (where the terminal servers are) get the max color dept, but the rest of the users get miniminal color dept.

The policy is for the terminal server not the client workstations.
