Check permissions on the organizational unit

To resolve this issue, you should grant read permissions for the RD Connection Broker computer account to the organizational unit (OU) in which the user account resides.

  2. Click View, and then click Advanced Features.
  3. Right-click the organizational unit in which the user account resides, and then click Properties.
  4. Click the Security tab, and then click Add.
  5. Click Object Types, select the Computers check box, and then click OK.
  6. In the Enter the object names to select box, type the RD Connection Broker computer account, and then click OK.
  7. Click OK to close the dialog box.

1. Verify that the RD Connection Broker server has read access to the OU property of the user's Active Directory Users and Computers entry.

2. If a third-party application calls the ResolveResource method of the RPC interface on a user, verify that the user has a personal desktop assigned in Active Directory Users and Computers.
