How to Open a New Session To RDS Session Host instead of Reconnecting to an Existing Session?

Dear Sir,

I have 3 RDS (Session Host Servers ) Win 2008 R2.
Those Servers are configured as NLB cluster, multicast using one Virtual IP Address.
All servers are joined to the domain controller.
I am using one user name in AD to connect to the RDS Servers from 300 Thin Clients.
Identical application is installed on those RDSs.

I have an issue that when I reboot all the Thin Clients and attempt to log on.
I am receiving the following message in grey WINDOW:

Windows Log On:
Select an existing session to reconnect....

many sessions are listing with different time...

I don't want to reconnect to an existing session, I need to open each time a new session to the RDS.
This is an exam class, I don't want the reconnect message appears to the students to choose which session they need to log on.

I already configured under RD Session Host Configuration, End a disconnected session after 1 minute.

Please I need help.

Thank You!

Hello

A quick solution is to use one compte for each thin terminal. Or accept to reconnect only from originating IP (in ADUC).

Hello Dan,

I found "Allow Reconnecting From Originating Client Only" in ADUC.
Please find attached screen shot, correct?

Well I think is more accurate if you create an account for each terminal like student1 to studentn, with same password or not. That will resolve your problem (each user will see only one connexion).
And in a other approach you can set "end a disconnected session" to 5 min. That will kill all session deconnected session, so you will have less sessions active.
Anyway I think the multiple user is best option.

Hi Dan,

Thank you for the reply.

In fact, It's difficult to create 310 users...
I'm using those terminals for one purpose application.
It's quite difficult to go to each terminal and change to a new username...
When the TC reboot, it log on automatically to the RDS server, without user(student) interaction.
However, I'm using "end a disconnected session" to 1 min...
Is there any way to kill the session immediately less than 1 min?
What about "Allow Reconnecting From Originating Client Only" in ADUC, it will reconnect only for the client whose IP match?

Regards,

-Charbel-

Yes the "Allow Reconnecting From Originating Client Only" was created to list only the sessions launched from that specific terminal (not IP). If you look on the terminal server manager, for each connection you have the "client name", so I think all your thin clients had differernt names (you can look to test for 2 different connections).
And yes check the "Allow Reconnecting From Originating Client Only" option for the thin client account to see what is happen (once that you killed all disconnected sessions, you will have the message only if you had leave the TSE  disconnected and you  try a new connexion in 1 min).

Hello Dan,

Thanks for the information.

Is there any way to kill any disconnected session immediately less than 1 min?
Registry or something?

Hello Dan,

I had one issue today that when I restarted one Thin Client, it login and reconnect to a different session instead of opening a new session...
Strange, I didn't have this issue before with Win 2003 TS...

Any idea?

Thanks.

Did you have restarted the TSE services? Maybe you still had same connexion that was created with reconnect from any IP

No I didn't restart the Terminal Server Services :)

What is the name of TS Services under services.msc to restart them?

Thanks.
