Server Manager Loads On Dynamic DaaS Desktop Startup

Issue Description

The operating system used in the DaaS environment is Server 2012 R2. Server Manager will load by default for new users. While this can be disabled per user easily on static desktops, this can be a nuisance on dynamic desktops.

 

Solution/Workaround

Disable server manager from starting using group policy.

  • Open a Group Policy Object (GPO) where you want to configure the setting in the Group Policy Management Editor.
  • Navigate to Computer Configuration, Policies, Administrative Templates, System, Server Manager.
  • Double-click Do not display Server Manager automatically at logon.[DoNotOpenAtLogon]
