RD Services vs. Remote Desktop?

    Question

  • RD Services is basically Remote Desktop except it allows multiple user sessions, correct?

    Is there a way to make an end-user's experience more clean?  Such as not showing Server Manager or Admin tools?

  • If the user is not an admin, there are a number of ways to lock down things for a standard user. Or else you can simply perform the following:

    You can do it by registry change

    Do not open Server Manager at logon

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Server Manager

    0 to disable and open the window normally; 1 to enable and prevent the window from opening.

    Do not open Initial Configuration Tasks at logon

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Server Manager\oobe

    0 to disable and open the window normally; 1 to enable and prevent the window from opening.

    or you can use the following GPO:

    “Do Not Display Server Manager Automatically at Logon”

    under Computer Configuration/policies/Administrative templates/System/Server Manager.

    Hope this helps.
