Multiple/Single Terminal Sessions Split by Policy?

I have a client that needs to have concurrent RDP sessions enabled for a specific group of people, while restricting the rest of the users to a single session. I have scoured the web and tried  dozens of different group policy configurations, but I just cannot seem to get this to work.

Is this even possible, or is it an all or nothing type of scenario? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

you could create a second RDP listener and put it on a different port, then the users that are allowed multiple connections would need to connect via that port.

I dont think there is any way you could do it with a single listener as this is decided prior to Group policy being applied. The key word here is "think" as i havnt looked it up.

Thanks for the feedback Andrew. I tried doing that, but the setting to allow/deny multiple concurrent sessions by the same user seems to be applied to the terminal server, not the listener port. If I highlight the first listener port and change the option, it also changes it for the second listener port.

Any other ideas?

It is a system level setting.  You can't do this.  

However, you could split your farm up into different groups, and have different settings for different groups of servers.

Thanks Coralon - I ended up setting up RD Gateway and deploying a second server. Not really what I wanted to do, but it looks like I have no choice. Got everything configured and it works good.
