    Applying a group policy to one server

    I created an Organization Unit called 'Terminal Service Servers'. I
    moved my one TS server into this unit. I then created and linked a
    GPO to this Org Unit that simply adds the login button to the start
    menu and removes the shutdown button.

    My problem is now the shutdown button is removed from the users
    workstations. What do I have wrong?

    I will answer my own question....I found another policy above the new
    OU that was overriding.

    Ok, I found another policy that was overriding the the new one. I
    removed it and it seems now the shutdown button appears on the TS
    server and on the client.

    You may need to use the Group Policy loopback feature IIRC:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/260370

    BUT - If your TS users can shutdown the TS then they must be running with
    Admin rights. This is a VERY bad thing to do from a security/virus/etc.
    point of view.
