Terminal server 2008 destop session locks on idle. How do I change the idle time to a longer time?
Posted on 2011-03-10
I have small business server 2008 premium. SBS2008 on one server and server 2008 on a second server.
On the second server I have terminal server 2008 running.
I am having a difficult time finding where to correct this issue.
My users are complaining their terminal server desktop idle timeout sessions are too short. The users are saying after approximately 5 to 10 minutes of inactivity in their terminal desktop session it locks and they are having to re-enter their password in too many times in a day.
A question I have is, is there a default idle terminal session lock time in a SBS2008. If so, can someone indicate where I can change that setting to 1/2hr?
I setup both servers and I have not setup any Group Policy to lock the terminal session on idle.
I have checked the terminal server local and domain group policies and I cannot see how the session idle locking is occuring.
