Delegate Manage Sessions and Open files in Server 2008 R2

Is is possible to delegate the Managing of Sessions on a 2008 R2 file server, without giving the help desk person the ability to logon to the server as administrator?  Maybe in the RSAT tool.

Try this, from help desk user machine. I assume, helpdesk user have XP machine. Right click My Computer>Manage

now you will see it is connected to local system, right click on the top and connected it to the file server and browse to the session folder and see if this works.

What permissions on the server would that user need to be able to kill those sessions? I am afraid that power users is not enough.  I know connecting in the way you suggest will work but without elevation of privilage they will get an access denied when performing the action.

Give a try with Power User Permission first. I assume PU should work. Create a test account.

I have verified this works with a test account but haven't been able to verify with my user.  Regardless, I am awarding the 250 points.  Thanks!
