Remote desktop connection in Window 2012

I have enabled the remote connection on Window 2012 under System Properties --> Remote  -> Remote Desktop.

However, I can't find a way to view the current connection session and cut it if needed. Any idea ?

You can't. By default, windows server is only licensed to all remote desktop connections for administrative purposes only, and while you can add other accounts using then ethic you mentioned, that is still for delegating admin duties. It does not change the licensing, and therefore the advanced tools of managing connections are also not installed.

If you want those tools, you have to set up RDS. That means installing and configuring the roles and buying and installing RDS CALs. That is the only way to allow connections for non-admin purposes and install the tools to manage those connections.

Hello,

Terminal Services Manager is no more available in Windows 2012 (I am not sure about the task manager). You can enable RDMS through Server Manager or use Powershell cmdlets.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Simply reconnect and log out. Without the RSDH role, only two concurrent sessions will be allowed, so it isn't like you'll end up with a ton of idle sessions. It simply can't happen. There is no GUI for session management in 2012. There is no workaround.

Is there a way to fiercely cut a session in case two sessions are occupied ?

When you connect as an administrator, it will prompt to forcefully disconnect another user if required.
