  • How do i join a group to remote desktop users

    we have a win server 2008 domain, and all the workstations are domain members, and all login credentials are domain one.
    Please am having an issue with joining a group to the remote desktop users in AD without adding it individually in each work station as an administrator.

    I want to add/join these group in the DC to remote desktop users, please i need your help on this.
    Thank you

    You can start by creating a Security group for the users you intend to add . Then create a GPO that links to the intended OU where all the computer accounts will be.
    You can then edit the GPO to add the Security Group you created before to the Local Remote Desktop Users Group in two ways.

    1- Through a Startup script

    Create a batch file with the following syntax: net localgroup "Remote Desktop Users" "Domain\Security_Group_You_CreatedBefore" /Add
    Asign the script as a Startup script.

    2- Through a Restricted Groups Config.

    Edit the GPO in the following:
    Computer Config | Windows Settings | Security Settings| Restricted Groups

    Have a look at this article for more info on Restricted Groups: http://www.windowsecurity.com/articl...ed-Groups.html

              L4ndy has shown you how to add users to the 'remote users group' using Group Policy.

              You need to locate the policy that has disabled 'Remote Desktop'.
