Hi there.

I have a Win 2003 Server (Standard Ed.) as Terminal Server. There several useres can logon using the same user name.

Now I am setting up a windows 2008 Server (Web Ed.). On this one (right now) the second user logon on using the same user name as the first one did, takes over the session on the first one. :-(

In Windows 2003 I know how to allow a user to be logged on not only once. But in Windows 2008 Web I don't find where to control this setting.

Can you tell me where to set whether or not a user is allowed to logon only once ?

Thank you for ever tip.

Christine

Web Edition doesn't support terminal services. It allows only remote administration so it has to work exactly as you described.

So e.g. Admin can not logon twice?
But one user Admin and another user Admin2 could logon at the same time, right?
Commented:
if you have two different admin users they can logon simultaneously.
