comment On a terminal services server windows 2008 how can you lower the security settings of users
@cole, OK, My initial thought that group policy changed was based on an incorrect reading of the tree (too many roots, computer, user, non-administrator, that I had open on my console). However, the behavior did change. Quickbooks stopped complaining, and it is now Medium high. This all happened because of Changing IE ESC to on and then back to off. So Group Policies still don't work, but the problem is at least solved.

@cole, That is actually an interesting data point. That setting is changed when you install terminal services automatically. I set it back to on, logged in, logged out, and set it to off. Now it shows medium-high instead of high. It seems to have also made some changes to the group policy on its own (playing with that setting). I'm investigating further. +1 for all the effort. Thanks for that, however it works out.

@joeqwerty, Yes, and we even restarted the server last night (for an unrelated reason, a QuickBooks update I think). Didn't take.

Thanks, but that is the setting I was playing with, and it isn't helping (I tried again for now for good measure). I have to think that the Terminal Services has some sort of override for this, but I have no idea where to look to find it.

"User Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\ Internet Explorer Maintenance\Security" is not available exactly under that name in Local Group Policy, and what is there is different enough that I can't find any corresponding setting.

Yes, oddly the file does correctly copy.

comment Has anyone got billed for malicious activities (DDoS) on a cloud server?
@gareth_bowles, first the fact that the URL is not publicized helps, but the stronger defense against that is to only allow traffic from the proxy or otherwise known/useful sources.

comment Where can I find out what a given stop error means?
I'm not sure what information to give. The server was going along - it has a database, a vpn connection, and a remote desktop connection was going at the time. I think it was also copying some files over that VPN connection at the time it crashed.

comment Cloud platform for virtual desktops
Thanks for the info! The thing is their solution seems to require the desktop be server-only. I'm also looking for a solution that allows a laptop user to disconnect and run the desktop, and resync the next time they connect. Those exist (ACE does I think, and I know others do) but combined with the option of running the server in the cloud, I haven't seen yet.

comment Cloud platform for virtual desktops
The advantage would be scalability. You could scale the amount of ACE desktops supported on a vendor’s cloud infrastructure rather than building out your own servers if demand peeks (say in a seasonal business that increases staff by 25% during the high season).
