I am running a Windows 2008 server that has remote users connecting to it via terminal services.

I have group policies in place for each organization that connects.

Is there a way, through group policies, to disable audio on a remote desktop connection?


  • Do you want to disable it for everyone connecting to the system? Or individual users? – Zoredache Nov 6 '13 at 17:24
  • Everyone within that policy, if possible. – JohnDoh Nov 6 '13 at 17:37
  • You didn't answer my question. There is a policy, but it is a per-computer policy and it applies to the terminal server, completely disabling audio. So I guess that is what you want, because it will affect everyone within that policy right? – Zoredache Nov 6 '13 at 17:42
  • Yes that is what I'm wanting – JohnDoh Nov 6 '13 at 17:43

The group policy that controls device and resource connection is under.

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Device and Resource Redirection.

These settings are per-computer.
