I have two servers in a domain, running on VMWare. WS2K8R2 domain controller and Server 2012 RD Session host. I want to disable/remove the server manager and powershell icons from the taskbar, and make them inaccessible to users.
I have configure group policy Computer Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > File System and made these entries:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Windows PowerShell\Windows PowerShell.lnk
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Windows PowerShell\Windows PowerShell (x86).lnk
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools\Server Manager.lnk
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools\Windows PowerShell Modules.lnk
Removed Creator Owner and Users from the permissions and run gpupdate.
Users still have those icons available and clicking on them opens up those applications. There are additional GPO's that are active and do work.
Is there something else I need to check?
