SBS 2008 – Remove the Single TS User Restriction on the Server

We have a need to have two TS sessions on our SBS 2008 lab systems for training purposes.

To accomplish this, we need to remove the following setting in the Terminal Services Configuration:

09-03-09 SBS 2008 - Remove Single Session in TS

Remove  the Single Session Restriction

  1. Click Start and type: Terminal Services Configuration [Enter] (the console will come up immediately while typing)
  2. Click Continue at the UAC prompt.
  3. Double click on the Restrict each user to a single session setting.
  4. Uncheck the setting.
  5. Click Apply and OK.

Note that if the setting has been changed while connected to the server in an RDP session, the session will need to be closed before another admin can share a Terminal Services session.

Of course on SBS 2011 this is now called "Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration"
