How to restrict drive redirection for some users in RDS 2012 R2- Step by step with screenshots 

 

Q: we want to restrict drive redirection for some users in RDS 2012 R2 environment.

 

A: I understand that you want to restrict drive redirection for some users in RDS 2012 R2 environment. If there is anything misunderstood, please feel free to let me know.

Based on my lab test, perhaps we can use the CAP in RD gateway (if RD Gateway is used) to achieve this:

1, Create 2 groups in ADUC for non-restricted users and restricted users (in my lab, it is test1 and test2) and add the corresponding users to the groups

2, Create 2 CAP in the RD Gateway server, one policy to allow drive redirection for users in test1 and another policy to deny drive redirection for users in test2 and set the corresponding value

3, Enable the group policy to specify the RD gateway server and do not allow the users to change the settings (enforced)

Here are the screenshots of my test for your reference. You may need to try in your environment to see if it works.

1, Two CAPs in the RG gateway and detailed settings

2, The group policy

Open local group policy editor (gpedit.msc or be done by GPO), in the left pane, under User Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Windows Components, expand Remote Desktop Services, and then click RD Gateway.

Enable the following two group policies:

Enable connection through RD Gateway (clear the Allow users to change this setting check box)

Set RD Gateway server address




3, The result:

Run mstsc.exe and select the drive to be redirected



The drive redirection is successful for users in test1



There is no redirected drive for users in test2
