Where is the user account in AD? Is it in the same OU as the terminal
servers? If so, then that will not work. If not, then something else must be
going on. Here's how it works. You enable a computer for loopback. That
means that any GPOs that contain user settings, that are normally only
processed by the computer, get processed by any user logging into the
loopback enabled machine. If a machine is not enabled for loopback, then the
only way a user logging into that machine would get the same settings, is if
the GPO enabling those settings is linked too high in the AD hierarchy, or,
your user account is in the same OU as the TS box.

Okay.  I'm still not understanding.  I have one user logging on to both TS
boxes. I want the policy to apply only on one box, but not the other.  

 

Sorry for not getting it!  This is my first terminal server.  Thanks for
your help!

Savannah-

If the user account is in line to process the user policy on the loopback
GPO, then its going to get it unless you also permission the loopback GPO to
only allow the group of users that you want to process that policy the
ability to do so.

 

In other words, you must have the loopback GPO linked in such a way that the
user accounts that you don't want to apply it to are processing it as a
normal course of their policy processing cycle. If you only want specific
users to process it, then only allow those users the ability to process the
policy.

Yes, I only have the machine, and the one test user listed in Security
Filtering. I ran gp results on the 2nd box and my policy is not applying to
the box, but it IS applying to the user.  I want to only apply to the user
if the user is on the OTHER box.  

 

Here is a screenshot of where I set the loopback processing:

Did you remove the Authenticated Users group? Try running GP Results Wizard
against that 2nd TS box and see if it says that the GPO is applying to it,
and why.

I have this set as well.  I have the single server along with the users it
should apply too listed in security filtering, but the policy is still
applying when I log on to my second terminal server.

Savannah,

You would use security filtering of the GPO that applies the loopback
setting. So, for example, if your TS machines are called TS1 and TS2 and you
wanted only TS2 to run in loopback mode, you would remove "Authenticated
Users" from the loopback GPO and add the TS2 machine account to the GPO's
security filter.

Ok, I had this enabled, but the policy is still applying to both terminal
servers.  How do I tell it which one it needs to apply too?

Savanah,

 

Yes, that is called loopback processing. It means that User policy gets
applied based on the location of the computer object, not the user object.

Is there a way to get my group policy to apply only if the users log in to
one of my terminal servers, but not the other?

 

Thanks!
