I'm looking to deploy Remote Desktop Services on Server 2008R2 or 2012 at a small location. There will be 5 thin clients total. I would like 4 of the thin clients to have the same desktop and login name but I'm not sure if this is possible. It's not a big deal if its not but I'm trying to figure this out before I deploy.

You can disable single session restriction for by disabling "Restrict each user to single session" option under remote desktop session host configuration.

I am sorry I don't know the exact answer, but with our RDP sessions in to the servers I have signed in with the same user name more then once.  I would think it would be fine.
