SBS 2011 users cannot remote desktop to their PCs

We have just set up a new domain and SBS 2011.  There are two users that need to be able to use remote desktop to access their PCs from any of the other workstations.  I have been editing group policies and also adding them to the RD group locally on their PCs and they still cannot access.  Is there a specific way to do this?  I have always made changes and then used gpupdate /force to make sure changes push out immediately.  Still nothing.

If its only 2 computers it might be worth just doing it manually. Just go to system properties -> Remote and tick the box that says allow remote connections to this computer and then configure the users in there. Hope this helps.

that has already been done.  I did notice that the remote properties screen has 'allow' selected and cannot be unselected because it is controlled by group policies.  I did also add the users manually, but they still cannot access.

In the local security policy on the machine you want to connect too look under Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment -> Allow log on Through Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services on XP and below)

Also check users and groups on the local machine and add the users to the remote desktop users group and see if that helps.
