    Is there any easy way to do this?

    A couple of users have access to our Terminal Server from one of our other work locations. The other day, by accident, a user shut down the Terminal Server instead of logging off. It caused a little mess, but nothing more than a few voicemails about what happened.

    I did some searching, and I've found some articles about restricting user rights, but I'm not sure how to do it. We are a pretty small company with a few servers. We do not have any OU's, so I guess I can't use a GPO if one was available, right?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    CM.

    Even local polices (under Admin menu) within the TS should prevent people from shutting down the system.
