SCCM Remote Control

Is there any way to keep SCCM from using terminal services if no one is logged into a machine or it is locked? Thanks!

No, this is not possible. This is by design:
In essence the initial story was that this is no longer allowed as it is a security risk.If you login with admin credentials and the connection is broken for whatever reason the user is left with an admin session at his disposal.So only 2 scenarios were left implemented1) You need to assist a user in performing a task, hence the user needs to see what you are doing, and you are doing it using his credentials. -> use remte Assistance or remote tools2) You need to perform an admin task on a machine, so from a security perspective the user shouldn't be able to intervent -> use remote desktop.The scenario you are talking about was deprecated from a security perspective, yet opens up one scenario where a user has locked his machine and has unsaved data for which no good solution is available, as when you use remote desktop here the user will lose data.

One problem is that it would seem that when I work using terminal services and work an issue... I can come back to the machine and it has logged me off the session leaving me to start my work over again. This is a real pain! Where did you find this info?

That is too bad... Would not have hurt to leave the option available and let the organization decide to turn off. Thanks For the info!
