Terminal Services - Limiting users to one session

We are logging into a Windows 2003 server using remote desktops console in Administrative tools. Seems like the session is not limited to 1 session per user. I checked TS configuration, and under "terminal server settings" i changed "Restrict each user to one session" to yes.. but, still doesn't work..

Are you running the Windows Server 2003 as a Terminal Server? The GPO under the TS configuration is for Terminal Server environments, not just a standard Windows Server 2003 environment.

What you have do is right ....
Tray to set the Restrict Terminal Services users to a single remote session group policy to Enabled.

I tried.. but, when I login, a new session is being created, and it's not taking me to the console session. Thanks for that hint though
