Remote Desktop Login Priority

If we had someone on a computer and we wanted to kick them off with the domain's administrator account by logging in remotely with remote desktop, can we do it without having to ask the current user to allow us to login?

Does it work as long as the user is not a domain admin or what is the priority ranking?
Aaron

If you RDP into their machine with the domain admin account the user doesn't have to interact for you to kick them off their session.  When you enter the DA credentials it will ask if you want to log-off the current user.

IMHO you will make someone mad and possibly have data corruption and lost data at their end.
But yes it should work.

Well it would only be used when it was necessary. We tried it on a computer where a domain admin was logged in and it asked them if we it was fine for us to connect but then we tried it on a regular user and it asked us if we wanted to boot them off. Therefore my question is how the ranking priority works.

Is that just a standard ranking system or do you have a source for?

Well if you find a source it would probably be better actually. I would rather give the points to a linked source, know what i mean?
