I have an SBS 2011 Server with 8 client workstations. On all workstations the Remote Desktop option in Control Panel - System is greyed out. Im presuming a Group Policy is causing this, how do I make it available for enabling on a client?

Any help is appreciated,
Thanks

Hi:
it should be enabled by the GPO if the clients were added with the wizards.  Assuming you mean to disallow RDP, I am not sure why you would want to do this, but you need to not apply the GPO.  I don't remember exactly where it is applied, but start with domain settings and then look for SBS Business - Compuers OU.

first identify what GPO is applied to block the settings

run the gpresult on one of the effected computer

gpresult /h c:\gpreport.html (elevated mode)

once exported, you can easily identify what is applied as it is html format.

then use group policy management to update / remove / edit the policy regarding on the settings.

All the clients are Windows 7 and weren't added using the Wizards.  RDP connects to the server from any client but the server cant RDP to any clients.

Hi,

Normally the GPO setting to enable/disable RDP on clients/servers is located here

Computer Config>Admin Templates>Windows Components>Remote Desktop Services>Remote Desktop Session Host>Connections

Policy is called "allow users to connect remotely using remote desktop services"
