Where is "Remote Desktop Connection Manger" in Server 2012

Remote  Desktop Services Role installed
Remote Desktop Connection Broker Role feature installed
Remote Desktop Session Host Role feature installed

I want to run "Remote Desktop Connection Manager", but I can't find it.

Thanks for any help.

Try start and type "Remote Desktop ... " until you see what you want


In Windows Server 2012, a single interface, Remote Desktop Management Server (RDMS), replaces all above snap-ins and provides centralized management of the Remote Desktop infrastructure.  RDMS is a plug-in to the new Server Manager in Windows Server 2012.

not there, can't find it, simple functionality... I just want to manage a couple of settings that were easy to manage on server 2008r2 and extremely, extremely, difficult to manage on server 2012.

session length
disconnect behavior

that kind of thing

Maybe this will help

To specify timeout and reconnection settings for a remote session:

On the RD Session Host server, open Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration. To open Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration.

Under Connections, right-click the name of the connection, and then click Properties.

In the Properties dialog box for the connection, on the Sessions tab, select the following options as necessary:

Select the Override user settings check box, and then set timeout settings for End a disconnected session, Active session limit, and Idle session limit.

Select the Override user settings check box, and then select one of the following reconnection settings: Disconnect from session or End session.

Click OK.


You can also configure timeout and reconnection settings by applying the following Group Policy settings:

Set time limit for disconnected sessions
Set time limit for active but idle Remote Desktop Services sessions
Set time limit for active Remote Desktop Services sessions
Terminate session when time limits are reached

I guess thre are different versions of server 2012 because the one I'm using in Amazon definitely does not have this:

point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration

But that's ok, I'm going with GPO, which is what the nannies at MS are forcing us to use, I guess.  (No more workgroups allowed.  That's interesting.)

Anyway, i'll go to the pointless trouble of building a domain controller for my otherwise-one-server-setup and  use group policy.

thanks for all your help
