I would like to delegate permissions to a user who can manage active users using RDP. This will be on a Server 2008 AD using Terminal Sevices.

The easiest way to accomplish this is to create a security group for them, and apply security to the RDP listeners on your machine.  You can assign specific rights such as logoff, reset etc.

Thank you for the reply and this does sound like what I need to do. I am pretty new at this. I was wondering if you could be a little more specific? When you say create a security group for them do you mean the RDP users?  How do I then delegate someone to mange this then? I do not recall seeing anywhere in security permissions that allows for log reset etc? Thanks for trying to help me.

You would create a security group that you plan to assign the management permissions to the RDP listener.  It literally has nothing to do with the end users themselves, just the ones you are delegating to.  

There is an mmc snapin to manage the listeners themselves (RDP, ICA).  When you look at the properties of the RDP listener, the security tab is where you would assign those permissions.   The security tab has several permissions - Logon, Logoff, Reset, Shadow, etc.

Coralon;

  I have created my security Group and added the user that I want to be able to manage the RDP users.

  I am hung up on the rdp listener. What is the snapin called that I need to install? On the server I have Remote Desktop Services installed which has the Remote Desktop Services Manager and I do not see what you are talking about. Can you please provide more guidance?
Thank you

Sure.. it used to be called tscc.msc (terminal services configuration console).  

But, this is from a current article on the subject:
To verify Remote Desktop Services RDP-Tcp properties

Depending on the version of your operating system, please follow the steps below:

Setting via Remote Desktop Services Configuration

To configure the number of simultaneous remote connections allowed for a connection

On the RD Session Host server, open Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration. To open Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services.
Under Connections, right-click the name of the connection, and then click Properties.

Once you get to that point, there will be a security tab that you use to assign the permissions to.  I'd put in screenshot, but I'm at home.

Great Information after doing some further research was able to understand what you meant. Could have had more details and been more specific.

Thanks
