Hey guys,

We setup RDS on server 2008 r2. We have 5-6 remote users connecting.

I want to hide the shutdown option and the control panel.

Any walkthroughs?

GPO will do this:
Click Start > Run > Type “gpedit.msc” and press enter
Go to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Toolbar
The option you are looking for is “Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate commands”
Right Click > Properties > Select Enabled > Click Apply > Click OK

User Configuration, Administrative Templates, and Control Panel.
Right click on Prohibit access to the Control Panel and click on Properties.
To Disable the Control Panel Icon
Dot Enabled.
Click on OK.
Close the Local Group Policy Editor window when done.

Would prefer not to do the local GP.

What route would you prefer to go ?

Can you help me to understand your reasoning for not going with the local policy ?
That would help a lot in determining the best route for a potential solution.

I would like to use Group Policy, but rather not local but do through the AD/OU route.

Simply group your TS servers in ONE OU can create the GPO defined above and apply it.

That should be all you need.
