We currently utilize folder redirection for users
belonging to specific security groups in our native W2K
domain. The re-direction works very well. Recently we
introduced a W2K Terminal server into the environment and
now have these same users receiving re-directed folders in
their Terminal server session as well. We would like a
means to prevent this folder re-direction for users
logging on to the terminal server. i.e. - when log in to
the Terminal server session they do not get a re-directed
desktop, start menu, etc. they simply receive the default
All Users desktop configiured locally on the terminal
server (or even a modified folder re-direction to local
folders on the terminal server itself).
I hope this makes sense. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Create a loopback policy for the terminal server. By doing this the users
will not receive the folder redirection policy that they normally receive
unless you choose the merge option when creating the loopbak policy. Take a
look at the following link for more info

Thanks Tim. Loopback policy for server worked like a
charm.
