This article will show you how to allow multiple remote desktop sessions for the same user in Windows 2012.
Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012 only allow a single remote desktop session per user. However, it is sometimes necessary to allow multiple remote desktop sessions for a single user at the same time. To allow concurrent same-user sessions, we must change the terminal server settings in the server’s registry.
Steps need to follow for Multiple Remote Desktop Sessions per user:
1. On Windows Server 2012, go to Search, type run, and then click Run. In the Run window, type regedit and press the Enter key to launch the Registry Editor.
2. In the Registry Editor go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ System\ CurrentControlSet\ Control\ TerminalServer.
3. When you select the TerminalServices Registry, the registry key fSingleSessionPerUser appears on the right panel.
4. Right-click on fSingleSessionPerUser and then select modify. Switch the value from 1 to 0. The value 1 indicates a single session for each user, while the value 0 indicates multiple sessions for each user.
You must restart your server after making these changes.
