Remote Desktop - Prevent/Restrict remote log off

Posted on 2009-12-20
Last Modified: 2013-11-30

We are running Server 2003 AD,

is there any way to prevent remote log off when connecting via remote desktop? I'd like to restrict it to certain users or object group that have ability to kick off another user's session.

Is there anyway to prompt the current user and allow them to respond before remote log-off takes place?

I am open to 3rd party solution.

    They can only kick off another user if they are an administrator of that machine. Do they need to be an admin?

    Also don't forget if they forget to log off and you don't have the right to "bump" them you may not be able to access that machine except from the console.
