I have a terminal server that wont play sound files. Went to Terminal Services Configuration > Connections > RDP-Tcp (& ICA-Tcp) > Client Setting:  Audio Mapping is grayed out and unchecked. Could this be the reason why? If, so what would I do to turn audio mapping on? I have turned it on for the local group policy and its still grayed out.

The issue I am having with checking group policy manager is that it is not even installed on the servers. Would I have to install it and then create a gpo for my terminal server to enable audio mapping?

Group Policy overrides the configuration set with the Terminal Services Configuration tool so you wana check Local Security Policy for audio mapping settings.
are u an admin on the machine?
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.
