Is it possible to sign into the same Azure Windows Virtual Machine using the same Administrator username and password
from two different machines at the same time?

Thanks

I am assuming you are referring to a remote desktop connection rather than a smb/http/ftp session.  The answer is it depends upon the operating system.  If the o/s allows 2 concurrent users then yes otherwise no

Yes. You've got to make a registry change and reboot though. Pulled straight from a configuration script I wrote:

		$regName   = "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server"
		$valueName = "fSingleSessionPerUser"
		$regValue  = 0
		RegWrite $hklm $regName $valueName $regValue 'reg_dword'

Open in new window

I'm sure you can easily modify this to your needs.
