I have a new terminal server 2016 but I can't seem to find or figure out how to see who's connected via RDP.  I have remote desktop services installed with remote Desktop Licensing Diagnoser and Remote Desktop Licensing Manager installed but I do not see any place to see what users are there.  Do I need to install something else?

Under server manager, left lane, remote desktop services, collections. It'll show who is connected there and the status of the connection.

It is there by default. The only way it isn't there is if you didn't fully configure your RDS environment.  Looks like this:

OK All I have is RD Gateway and RD Licensing.  I need RD Connection Broker?

OK so I created a query but I only see one session but I don't see who's connected.. It that right?

you shouldn't need to create a query.  Reference my screenshot.  That "connections" view is a default pane in Server Manager, and though I blacked out the user who was connected to my test lab (me, but I don't need my username revealed for that instance), it is a default column on that view.

Then I'm missing something in the install.  Is there any instructions out there?
