Hi

I have a Windows 2012R2 server with a Remote Desktop Licences server confgured on it. I would like to build group policies that applied inly to the RDP users and not to the domain users. Is there a good way to proceed?

Thank you

That depends on how you want the policies to be applied. It is interesting that you say "RDP users and not domain users." In *most* environments, RDP users are still members of the domain. Only in some strange hosting configurations is this not the case.

So traditional GPO rules still apply. You can organize by OU. You can use security filters. Usually for user policies, WMI wouldn't apply, but there are some rare situations that can still use WMI filters. And of course loopback processing to make certain settings only apply under specific machine conditions.  Each of those, or a combination therein, should achieve most folks' goals.
