Server 2003 console and remote desktop issue

I have a strange issue with a 2003 server where when I Remote Desktop into the machine I don't see the console being locked up.  It used to lock up and take over the console's session but not anymore.  It seems that both RD user and console user is having the ability to run their own session as in Terminal Service.

The 2003 server is not a terminal server and was never configured as terminal server.

Is there a way I can disable this or how to troubleshoot this?

Thanks,

Wayne

No I am not.  I am just logging onto the server using Remote Desktop (double clicking the icon in programs > accessories > remote desktop) and it used to just take over the session that's active on the console.  Only administrator go on the server so there is only one account and profile.

However, if I am logged in on the console then remote desktop into the server it will create a different session instead of taking over the console's session.

I tried the /console switch and that didn't work.  Had to use the /admin instead and that worked.  However, I never had to do this before.
