How do I disable remote logoff on Terminal Server 2003

Posted on 2007-10-11

We have a Terminal Server running 2K3EE.  There are some generic accounts on there for offices i.e. Dallas, Houston, etc.  The highest credentials on these accounts are Remote Desktop User.  I want to stop users from getting bumped if someone logs on with Dallas account and someone is already using Dallas account.  Then they can use Dallas2 and so on...  Right now users are getting booted if someone uses the first Dallas account.  I want it to stop them from logging on if there is a session already open.

    In the user properties for the account click on the Sessions tab.  Select the option that says "From originating client only" under  Allow reconnection.  This option is used to prevent users from reestablishing a broken connection from a machine other than the one the sesson was originally started.  It should also work for your situation where the session hasn't been broken but users are starting another session from a different machine.

    in group policy, or local policy if its not in a domain, computer settings - admin templates - windows comp - terminal services - sessions - restrict user to one session - that will make sure that only one session at a time is open for each user, which should help a little as well
