Remote Desktop Services Restrict Single Session

Last Modified: 2015-09-14

I Deployed a RDS-Farm with 3 Servers (2012R2) where multiple users use remoteapps, webapps and remotedesktop to connect to the RDS-Farm.
And there we have a strange issue with the Single Sessions Restriction.

I created a GPO for the Servers with the Policy  "Restrict Remote Desktop Services users to a single Remote Desktop Services session" which i have enabled  to force single session per User.

If now a User connect over remoteapps he will connect to (example) session 1 on Server 1. Okay now if the same user connect over webapps he will be connected to the same session. But if the user connect over remotedesktop (rdp) he will be connected to a other session on a other Server and there is the Problem if he connect with a other session on a other Server he will use Temp. profiles.

I would like to force single session for the users, never mind with Connection method they use.

Maybe someone knows how i could do this.

Thanks in advance for all help.
