Right. That's the problem. You have the GPO linked at the domain level.
So, your users are getting it regardless of where they're located in the
domain, because they are in the Users container. What I see you have is
the TerminalServerPolicy GPO linked to both the domain and the TS OU,
but the TS OU link is disabled. What you should do is get rid of the
domain-level link and then you should be only effecting those users
logging into the one TS.

Here is a picture of my GP.  Maybe I have it linked wrong?

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. Check out this Microsoft KB article for more details:

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!
