You can do this in with RDC v7.0 onward but you need the client running Win 7 or better.  Use multimon instead of span.

You get remote dual monitor support if the remote and client computer are both running Windows 7 Pro or greater.

IE: Windows 7 Pro
Windows 8 Pro

There can not be a mix of a home edition and a pro edition.

thanks for the suggestions, we are all windows 7 prfessonal and dual monitor works great through rdp client. i am trying to get the F5 load balancer to recognize the dual monitor and looking for a way to do it through the published remote desktop apps.

What options do you have on the F5?  Just basic LTM, or something else?

As a basic load balancer the F5 has nothing to do with how many monitors RDP sees or can use.  It is just passing the RDP traffic through.  The RDP server side and client side handle the monitors.

Win 7 pro does not support multi-monitor over RDP!! only win7 enterprise and Ultimate do.
Span is the only option in win7 pro when using RDP. So I would also like to know how to enable to /span option for mstsc over F5 ?
