  • Allow non admin users to Kick TS users

    Hi

    I would like to know if it was possible for non admin users to log off “kick” terminal services users from the server. This would be for one or two trusted users in the office so that we can manage our licenses better instead of purchasing new ones.

    Is it possible?

    Thanks brian

    Isnt there an entry in group policy somewhere that sets user assignment rights?

      Hi TonyWeb

      I had a look here http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d....mspx?mfr=true and it does not seem to be what i am after, maybe i am missing it though.

      I would like a non admin user with right to go to the tab in the Users section of Task Manager and disconect people that may be out the office or away on business.

      Does this make sense?

      Thanks for the reply

        Thanks for the new name... i like it.

        You could use group policy to kill a session that has been idle for 10 minutes. How about that?

          oops sorry !

          I have taken that to the team that has this problem, they have said that if the phone goes or they have to talk to someone they would not want to loose work if it shutdown.

          They have 10 connections to the system and there are 20 users. They are still wanting the facility that someone can manually do it

          I'll keep searching for a bit

            How about making a few people power users? Im not sure if they can kick sessions but you might want to look at that maybe.

                possible indeed. it's quite easy actually.

                start --> run --> tscc.msc
                on the right side pane --> right click on RDP-TCP --> properties
                move to the Permissions Tab and click on Advanced
                add the user/group you desire and apply them with the 'Logoff' Permission

                good luck.
