I have inherited a client that has a terminal server that is locked down pretty tight by group policy but when i logon as the administrator and goto run>gpedit.msc I cant see that any rule is enabled or enforced?

So how do i determine where else to look?

Thanks for your time!

    You can use gpresult to determine what policies are in effect on your system. See here for syntax:

    Hope this helps!

    Don't forget to check the Local Security Policy of the terminal server. (I'm assuming it's not also a DC.)

    Off the top of my head I can't recall if the Group Policy Results query will include the Local security policy on the server in question or not. (I would defiantly not expect Group Policy Modeling reports to include it.)
