Terminal Server Timeout Settings

Ok experts I'm sure this is an easy one and something I should know, but having a brain freeze today.  I have a DC that is a 2008 and I have 3 terminal servers that are 2003.  Need to make changes to the idle timeout settings.  I've read many articles about these settings in the AD and also in GP.  I understand the AD settings per user, but the GP settings are where I'm confused.  Do I set the GP on the 2008 DC?  OR  Do I set the GP on each 2003 terminal server?  

Please help...need to get this resolved very soon.

Thanks in advance!!!

You will need to set the GPO (Best practice) on the DC.

Check the link below

I suggest you set OU for your terminal servers and link the GPO to this OU, then add your terminal servers to the OU.

I hope this helps
