Hello to all,

I have created an account for the user so the user will remotely connects to it using Remote Desktop Connection at the time of logging out he directly closes the Remote Desktop Connection now here is the problem his session is not ended and again by typing mstsc in Run command he is doing the same thing. So can we have such kind of thing if the user is logging on the machine and if he has any session active then it will logged him onto that session instead of creating a new session cause my server resources are getting used up in full.

On your server you need to configure it to only allow one session for each user, to do this goto;

Administrative Tools> Terminal Services Configuration

Then under Server Settings you will find "Restrict each user to one session" change this to Yes

Hopefully this helps you out.

Hello Lith i did some research on your link and i have found why its not working....

This functionality is working as expected. This setting is limits each user to one unique session. However, if the user is running different initial programs, the sessions are considered as different sessions.

does the user properly "log out"? or just close the connection with the "x"?

You can also try out the option of logging the disconnected sessions after a stipulated period example 15 min , 20 min or as per your needs.

In gpedit.msc
Administrative Templates, Window Components, Termininal services , sessions & then Set time limit for disconnected session.

By doing this atlest you will be able to free the previous session
