So if I modify the security filtering and take out authenticated users
and put in the computer account and a custom group called Terminal
Server Users and the admin is not a member of those then the admin will
not get the User Policy settings defined in that loopback processing
Group Policy, just the machine policy?  I should be okay with that if
that is how it will work.

You would use security filtering on the GPO. This dictates who/what the
GPO will apply to. I don't know how your groups are set up, but for
example, make sure the user you do not want the policy applied to is not
in the group the policy is going to apply to. 


Word of note though, in using loopback processing, the administrator
will be subject to the machine policy like everyone else, that's kind of
the point of it. However, if the admin is not in the group you are
applying this GPO to, the user settings will not apply.

How can I make it so that the Administrator account does not have the
User Configuration of the policy applied to them when they logon to the
Terminal Server?
