Rebuilding Terminal Server
Posted on 2013-05-29
We are in the process of rebuilding our terminal server. We want to keep the same name that we were using before. This is just a plain terminal server the only service it has on it is the TS licensing role. I created a new server with a different name and migrated the licenses.
What I did was I unjoined the old server from the domain and deleted its computer object from active directory.
I joined the new server to the domain with the same name as the old server. I "cut" and pasted the computer object into the OU with my other terminal servers.
The problem is that the OU has many printer group policy objects underneath it and the new server does not recieve those group policy objects.
Everything looks good, but when I log in as a user with a specific group policy linked to it nothing happens. I know that the GP is good because it works for my other 2 terminal servers that are in the same OU.
I was thinking it was something with using the same name. I have deleted and re-added it to the domain twice now with no change.
