Terminal Services Same User Logging Each Other Out

I have a Windows Server 2008 server setup with Terminal Services. I have thin clients setup up to log into the server with one user name for all the thin clients. With one thin client logged into the server, it works perfectly but if I setup another thin client to log into the server with the same user name, it will log the first thin client out. Any ideas on how to setup the server so I can have many thin clients logged into the server at the same time with the same user name?

You can't do this.  Each user needs his own session to be running, so that requires his own username/account.

Go to Start > do a search for "Terminal Services Configuration", and open it.

Highlight the entry at the top of the tree on the left, "Terminal Services Configuration: {servername}".

In the main pane, under "Edit settings", look for "Restrict each user to a single session", double-click that.

In the window which opens next, uncheck the box next to "Restrict each user to a single session," and click OK.

That *should* alleviate the issue.  Mind you, it's not really what TS/RDP was designed for, but it should work.
