Hi Guys

my company use windows 2008 r2 terminal servers and i often use tsadmin.msc to see what users are connected to what server.

i have just upgraded my laptop from windows 7 to windows 8.1, and now i have just discovered that tsadmin.msc no longer woks as Microsoft presume if you have 8.1 then you will be using 2012 terminal servers.

do any of you guys know of a way i can get tsadmin,msc working again, so far i have copied tsadmin and tsadmin.dll to system32 and tried to register the dll but i get the error message "the module tsadmin.dll was loaded but the entry-point dlllregisterserverwas not found" and when i run tsadmin i get "cannot create snap-in".

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Ashley

It could very well be that you have to install RSAT to get a working tsmanagement snap in.

i have already installed windows 8.1 RSAT and the tsmanagement snap-ins do not work with terminal server 2008r2, they only work with 2012 and above

You are eperfectly correct. And even with 2012R2, they don't shgow connetcted users.
So you might need a workaround: publish the tsmanagement itself as remoteapp. I don't see why that should not work.
