RDP Server Automatically Logs session off at certain time


I have taken over management of a remote desktop environment running on Server 2008. Client computers at a remote office log in via RDP to the server to use its applications. At a certain time each evening, all remote users are logged off automatically, and apparently locked out (I need to double check on this). I need to adjust the time, but cannot find a group policy or setting that is currently applied. The domain controller runs server 2003, and I have looked through all of the group policies as well as settings on the 2008 server.

I'm not sure what to look for or where to look next - any ideas?

rsop is the place if you are looking for any group policy applied.
Even if you suspect group policy do a favour, create a OU without inheriting any GP put RDS server and 1 test user and check if issue reappears.
If answer is no, then you need to go through RSOP .
If answer is YES ,then check with login and logoff or work duration configured in the domain . Is there any duration defined for RD session.

Check a user in Active Directory Users and Computers (Admin tools). Then in the account tab check to see if the logon hours have been restricted. I have a batch file I can share with you that allows me to adjust all my users logon hours. If there are logon hour restrictions this may account for when and why they are auto logged off.
