  • Remote Desktop licensing

    I have searched for the answers on this and get a bunch of links that do not apply. I'm hoping someone can set me straight. I have set up a new 2008R2 on a new domain (thanks everyone!) and it's going well. I haven't set up a Terminal Server yet; but in the meantime, only one administrator can log in via Remote Desktop. I've looked in the Local Policy; there are no settings for this. It's annoying, since the on-site admin keeps kicking me off. Is this setting a security setting, or is it a license issue? 2003 allowed 2 concurrent connections for Administrator. I can only get one. Thanks very much.

    Still 2 connections unless you have changed anything
    What about checking the TS connection manager?
