Send a message when users are connected to the RDS Server

Hello,
I've got a RDS Server with Remoteapp.
From the console you can send messages to users.
When a user connect to the server, i want that the RDS Server send a message automatically to the user, is it possible ?

thanks

Easiest thing is to use the Task Scheduler.

Create a new task and set the trigger as At Logon, then under actions select display a message, enter the message details and save the task.

There should be a GPO for that:

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options

These two settings:

Interactive Logon: Message title for users attempting to logon
Interactive Logon: Message text for users attempting to logon

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You mean the web interface?
In that case, no it's not possible.

Glen KnightCommented:
RemoteApp is delivered through the web interface or through the RDP client with specific settings and is populated on the start menu as applications only rather than desktops.

As I said, unless you are loggin on directly to the server using a full Remote Desktop Session or a Console Session there is no way to display a message.

Strange because from the console it works !
Are you sure that RemoteApp is delivered through the web interface ?
I'm not using Remote web access, more over IIS roles services are not installed and RemoteApp is working fine through RDP or MSI package deployed.

I said Web Interface or through RDP.

You still connect to the RDP client but you run an isolated session instead of a full desktop session.
