Configuring Server Manager and Initial Tasks Not to Run in a RemoteApp Session

Updated: March 15, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

If a user has administrative access to the terminal server where the RemoteApp programs are installed, when the user starts a RemoteApp program, the Server Manager tool and Initial Configuration Tasks also start in the RemoteApp session.

You can control this behavior by using the following Group Policy settings in the Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Server Manager node of the Local Group Policy Editor on the terminal server:

  • Do not display Initial Configuration Tasks window automatically at logon

    You must enable this policy setting to prevent the Initial Configuration Tasks window from opening when a user with administrative access starts a RemoteApp session.

  • Do not display Server Manager automatically at logon

    You must enable this policy setting to prevent Server Manager from opening when a user with administrative access starts a RemoteApp session.
