We have just setup Remote Desktop Services on server2008 r2 to enable a selection of users to access a specific application.

What im after if to restrict access to the local server itself i.e.: Local drives, Server Manager, internet explore and so on. The application I want them to use does require access to a mapped drive to gather data but that's all. How do I lock down the server so users are restricted an im not?

I hope this clear enough,

If you logon as an Administrator - you should have full access to the server. Just make sure that the Administrator is not in the USERS  or Authenticated USER group
