Need help defining Terminal Services Console

mcain_bba asked
Last Modified: 2010-05-18


I am remotely supporting several applications that are hosted on VM servers.  The primary connection tool is terminal serves console.  The string I use is:
%windir%\system32\mstsc.exe  -v:servername console
This works great.  But the local IT administrator continues to logon (sometimes with the correct profile and sometimes no) without specifying console.  This completely messes up the application because of the same services and applications running in multiple sessions.

I need help explaining this problem.  My choice of words and explanation is just not working.  Can someone help me find the correct words or white pages that I can reference?
