Hi,
I am wanting to be able to shadow view/control other users active RDP sessions in
Server 2012.
Have done research and cannot see how to do this in server 2012.
Anyone done this or know how to enable this feature?

I hope this helps someone. I ran into the same issue and decided to look at a third party utility. I use Goverlan Remote Control. You can shadow an RDP\Citrix session on your servers. You can do this because it does not rely on MS shadowing or mirror drivers.

Here is the product document if anyone else has been left in the dark with RDP Shadowing.

Hi,

We also had this problem. Groverlan works, but it is a little clunky in its support for RDP sessions. One solution that really helped us was intelliadmin. You can read more about their shadowing support here:

It works on 2012, all the way back to XP.
