Remote Desktop Services

    Question

  • I have a sbs 2011 server that is somewhat unstable from a failed sp install. So, I added a second domain controller that is Server 2008 Standard(not R2) to help with DNS, active directory, group policy, etc. I noticed that I was having some group policy issues(they seem to be solved now). However, when I was troubleshooting I noticed that on my laptop and on the sbs 2011 machine, I have the group policy setting for Remote Desktop Services, but that is not included with server 2008 standard(pre R2). So, my question is what happens when the two servers sync group policy objects?

    They sync AD objects and sysvol folders belonging to them. On DC side,
    there is almost NO os version dependency, only the schema version
    sometimes matters.
     
    What you see in gpedit depends on the admx template version you have
    installed. Remote Desktop Services was called Terminal Services in
    earlier versions. And if you have downlevel admx templates, you will see
    settings that were added later only if you view the GPMC settings report
    - they will show up as "extra registry settings" at the bottom of
    "administrative templates".
