two RDP users, same desktop

December 3, 2012 at 10:20:26
Specs: Windows Server 2008 R2
I want to ability to have 2 user accounts through RDP, yet have both users see the same desktop when they log-in.

I need to be able to allow the main administrator account to log in and see the desktop with shortcuts as configured, running tasks, open windows, etc as was left.

I also need to be able to allow a different user account, to be able to log-in (not simultaneously), and see the exact same desktop (same shortcuts, open windows, etc.).

With either user, when they log in, I want them to see the desktop as left by the last RDP user left it.

Is this possible? How do I make it work?

You can't have a user access a admin profile or they are not a user but an admin.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I did add the user to the admin group and need him to have admin access. The issue I get in to is that he still see's his personal desktop, not the admin desktop. The only reason I want a second admin account is for debug tracing as this is a software development application.

You can't do what you want, how you want to do it. Your best option is to setup a shared account that both users will use to access that system.
