Two applications, 1 terminal server, is that possible?

Can i run two applications on one terminal server. The problem that I am
having is when I use one app everything is ok, when I try to run the other
app using the same log on credentials, it takes me to the original app that I
ran not the other. I can't get it to stop doing that. Any settings that I
need to change?

Absolutely possible. We run several applications on a single server (upwards of 20 or more). Sounds like you have other issues. What application is this you're running?

I am trying to run a document management app and the problem is not the apps, but the RDP. When I log in to my terminal server using my credentials it keeps pointing to a database app that we run. If I change what program to use when rdp first connects, from the database app to the document management app, it keeps going back to the database app. It looks like either on my computer or on the server it is storing a file that routes my session automatically. I don't have anything specified on the server side to only use a specific application, so why is it trying to.

Possible that a login script is running?

Are you logging out each time, or simply closing the RDP window? Also are you logged into the console of this box running this application?

Hi ificuser,

Is this a saved RDP session?  It is possible to save an RDP session so that it launches a particular application.  

1.  Open the RDP connection but do not connect.
2.  Click Options>>
3.  Select the Programs tab

Is there a program there configured to launch?  


Cheers!

In the programs tab there is a program saved there. BUT when I clear that tab and enter the new app or just leave it blank, it takes me back to the original app. Somewhere there is a file being saved with that info, whether it be on my client or on the server, anyone know what that file is.

Do not put anything in that setting and SAVE the RDP session.  Then launch and it will take you to the desktop where you can launch any program you wish.  

The launch application is saved on YOUR computer in the place that I mentioned above.

yes I know that, but I don't want to give access to the desktop to my users. I want them to just be able to launch the application right off the bat. I want to basically create two independant RDP sessions that each open up a different program, and not go to the desktop

Then create two saved RDP sessions.....One for App1 called app1 and one for App2 called app2 and the users can launch either or both

That's my problem, I can't do that.

When I create app1 everything works ok, when I create app2 and connect, the server sends me to app1 again, even though app2 is configured to in the program section to run on log on.

Should of checked the AD settings, someone had typed in the information into the AD user object and it was defaulting to those settings not my desktop settings.
