Symptoms
When you change the default connection settings in the server settings in the Terminal Services Configuration snap-in, the changes are not applied to existing connections.
Cause
If you manually edit the permissions on a connection before using one of the default connection settings, the default connection settings are not applied to the connection.
Resolution
To work around this behavior, use either of the following methods:
  • Delete any existing connections and re-create them. After the connections are re-created, the default connection settings are applied correctly. However, if you manually edit the permissions on a connection, the default connection settings are no longer applied.
  • Manually assign permissions based on the values of the default connection settings. The default settings are:
    Setting                        Permissions-----------------------------------------------------------------------Remote Administration Access   System: Full Control; Administrators:                                Full ControlApplication Server             System: Full Control; Administrators:                                Full Control; Users: User AccessAnonymous Access               Everyone: Guest Access; System: Full                                Control; Administrators: Full Control;                                Users: User Access; Guests: Guest Access					
Status
This behavior is by design.
