/ BLOG / MS Windows Server 2008 & multiple RDP connections per user

At work it’s sometimes useful to allow multiple connections to a server, from the same user account, so that we can get more done at once, or to help out each other.

By default on Windows 2008 server you can’t do this. Simple fix: Start up gpedit.msc, go to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Terminal Server\Connections\, find “Restrict each user to a single session” and disable. If you’re on a domain and want to apply it to multiple machines, you obviously need to make it a domain policy.

Bullshit back story applied, just for Chris! P.S. I win.
