Understanding Remote Desktop Services User Properties

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can configure Remote Desktop Services-specific user account properties by using the Local Users and Groups snap-in or the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in. The Remote Desktop Services-specific user account properties that you can configure are the following:

  • Remote Control

  • Remote Desktop Services Profile

  • Environment

  • Sessions

  • Personal Virtual Desktop

You can also configure many of these Remote Desktop Services-specific properties by using either of the following:

  • Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration snap-in

  • Remote Desktop Services-specific Group Policy settings

You can use Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration to configure per-connection settings on a Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server. You can configure the following settings by using Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration:

  • Remote Control

  • Environment

  • Sessions

Settings configured by using Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration will take precedence over the user account properties that have been configured in Local Users and Groups or Active Directory Users and Computers.

There are additional per-connection settings that can be configured by using Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration. For more information about configuring per-connection settings by using Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration, see the topic "Configuring Remote Desktop Services Connections" in the Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration Help in Windows Server 2008 R2.

For information about configuring Remote Desktop Services-specific properties by using Group Policy settings, see Using Group Policy Settings.
