Experts,

Is it possible to adjust the lockout time on a single server running Server 2008 Enterprise SP2?  Right now the sessions are locking the users out after just 5 minutes.  Is it possible to adjust that time on only that machine to say 15 minutes?

Thanks!

I see the properties, but i do not see the option for setting the timeout...  

Is it the Sessions or Environment tab?  Which option is it?  Idle?

Hi,
START | Admin Tools | RDP Service | Remote Desktop Host configuration
Right click on RDP-TCP, Properties
Click Session Tab
Change Active and idle times or disable them.
