RemoteApp User Assignment not filtering for members of trusted domain

Ruslan Nalivaika 106 Reputation points

Hi all, I am troubleshooting a relatively new RDS setup and need to assign different resource collections to different user groups in trusted domains. I have one gateway, one connection broker and several session hosts in the resource domain. The problem is that all RDS users from trusted domains for some reason see all collections and apps in RDWeb user portal, completely disregarding the user/group assignments on collections and apps. Althouth, filtering works fine for members of the resource domain.
Any ideas? Regards, Ruslan

    Hello Ruslan @Ruslan Nalivaika

    Please make sure you have added groups in Active Directory Users and Computers .

    For example, you have Group A and B, each group has their own users.
    Please add Group A and B as member of built-in group named Remote Desktop Users:
    Active Directory Users and Computers – your domain name – Builtin - Remote Desktop Users – Properties – Members – Add, manually add Group A and B.

    On your RD CB, open Server Manager – Remote Desktop Services – Collections:
    Click to select one of your collection, for example Collection 1 – PROPERTIES – TASKS – Edit properties – User Group – manually add Group A, and remove domain user group. Make sure there is only group A added.

    Save the change and check the result. Same operation for your collection 2 and group B.
