Disable network login message on for RDP on 1 server

Hello all.

I have a server that serves virtual apps using 2X Application server. It uses RDP technology. Everything works fine except that every time someone launches an app, they get the domain's interactive login message.

I want to eliminate this message, but only for users who are using the 2X apps. I need to keep it for all other users on the domain.

I thought of creating a security group to eliminate the message for anyone using RDP, but I do no want to do that either.

Any ideas?

So that is a computer policy (Interactive logon)

You can exclude/filter computers but not users because the setting doesn't apply to users.

Thanks

So I could exclude that server from the policy? The main problem is the interactive login is part of the default domain policy, which I don't want to the server to be completely excluded from.

I created a new policy just for Interactive login and change the default domain policy to not include Interactive login message. I then linked the Interactive Login policy to the domain and excluded a security group that included my app server.

I ran gpupdate on the app server and nothing changed. I will try tomorrow and see what happens.

What you did should work, have you rebooted that app server so it picks up the new group memberships (or is this an old group)

Thanks

It is a new group. I will reboot it tonight after hours. If it works, I will award you points. I appreciate the help.
