add users to Remote Desktop Group(local) script RRS feed

  • Question

  • My idea is to restrict users RDP to only to the machine which he was granted.we have redhat cloudforms setup, that provisions windows 7 VM from vmware template, and then joins to the domain. Due to security policy, only machines owner should be granted RDP access to the machine.

    My idea is if i can script this task, I can invoke from ansible. Is there a way to do it in powershell(without winrm) or any activedirectory modules ie. manage computer object(scripted format)?

  • This forum does not write or provide scripts on request.  Look in the Gallery or on PowerShellGet for pre-written scripts.

    You can also learn PowerShell and use the PS Local CmdLets to alter local groups.

    get-command -Module Microsoft.PowerShell.LocalAccounts

    Somewhere in there is a command that you might find useful.
