How to enable Single sign-on in terminal services - server 2012 R2

Have 15 users set up on server2012; however, I have 4 user accounts that I want to NOT have the abilitiy to sign on multiple times.  I want their logon to be "restricted".  In other words, once they sign on through their terminal server session, anyone else attempting to sign on with the same user name would be blocked from signon until the first user either signed out, or terminated their session.

Thanks.

Take a look at Loopback processing mode.  You can separate the users into different groups and apply different policies based on the group.

You can configure this setting by browsing to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Terminal Server\Connections within your GPO.
