So do you want it to apply to the new server or do you NOT want it to apply?

It depends on how you have it setup. Is the GPO applying to a User OU or a Computer OU?

Are you using loop back processing?

You probably want to place them in there own OU and applied group policies to that OU.

Put the new server in a different OU or deny the GPO from applying to the computer.

The GPO has "user" settings that need to be only applied when the user logs into a specific terminal server and not the other one.   This is the problem getting the user settings not to be applied for a specific computer.

Under the group policy object select the GPO and right-click -------> GPO status ----------> select Computer Configuration settings disabled.Disable Computer Configuration on GPO
