    Connect to a disconnected user session as administrator (without password)

    When I connect as an administrator to my terminal server I use the Users tab of Task Manager to see who's logged on.

    I can remote control Active users fine.

    What I can't do is Connect to Disconnected (or Active) users unless I know the password.

    I can do the log off function but I'd like to be able to save their work.

    Is there any way to Connect without a password?

    Nope...
    Instruct your users to logoff or force it.

      I am confused, You should be able to "Remote Control" from the Terminal Services Manager without needing any password. You do need to adjust Group Policy (or each user in AD) to not have to "Accept" invitation.

      Active Direectory Users & Computers: Edit User, Remote Control, Check Enable Remote Control, UNCHECK Require Users Permission, Check Interact with users session.

      I unfortunately agree that if they decided the D/C instead of Log out oh well for them. It is their fault for not Logging off correctly.

      If they are important enough to wararnt a phone call to them, it is your choice to call and get the password or ask they reconnect to log off properly.
