Environment: WIndows 2012 R2 TSE HyperV VM

Is it  possible to have different display resolutions for different RDS session?
(for example one session in 1920 x 1080, another session in 1600 x 900 and another session in 1280 x 1024)

It is not possible to change display resolution when connected to the RDS session.
What is the solution?

Thank you

When you start the Remote Desktop client you can adjust the screen size with the slider on the "Display" tab. or via "Run":
mstsc.exe /h:<height in pixels> /w:<width in pixels>

Or you can save a "connection profile" for each session, see http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-tips-fixing-remote-desktop-screen-settings/
Remote Desktop Manager (provided by MS) can simplyfy things https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=44989
To change the screen resolution you can just disconnect (not log off) and reconnect with a different resolution setting.

Remote Desktop Connection Manager is what I use and it works great for this purpose, the gui allows you to specify these settings and save them for later use.
