remote controle Server sesion


I just upgraded a terminal server from 2008 r2  to 2012 r2.
I am looking for a feature I used in 2008, which I can not find in 2012. I used to access it by
" start > administrative tools > remote desktop services > remote desktop manager >.
I would then select the user, right click and join their session.

does anything like this exist in 2012 r2 server ?

any help appreciated

Remote Desktop Services Manager does not exist in Server 2012.  RDS management and configuration is done through Server Manager and/or Powershell in Server 2012


Cliff GaliherCommented:
In 2012 R2, you can view a list of sessions in Server Manager. Right clicking a session will present a "shadow" task which you can use to connect to and watch or even interact with a session already in progress. Note that this is *only* available on Server Manager in 2012 R2 and works only on a 2012 R2 RDS server. 2012 does not have this option.
