I'm administrating a network of XP SP2 machines, and I would like to enable remote desktop for every one of them. How can I get this done using a GPO?
The setting for this in Group Policy is in:
Set to enable to allow terminal services (RDP) connections, disable to disallow.
This assumes that you are using an account to RDP to these machines that is allowed RDP access, such as a member of the administrators group.
There should be a VB Script out there That you can run In your GPO->User Configuration->Windows Settings->Scripts(Logon/Logoff). as a Logon script, to enable RDC. Then you would be able to Log in as a Domain admin or with the username that is Running on that Machine.
You are maybe gonna search for a while for such a script and changing it to your needs, but it is worth the trouble. you can use Vb script for almost anything you can click on, it is just a matter of getting the correct script.
