How to enable multiple remote connection for windows server 2012

SkyHi @ Tuesday, March 12, 2013

By default Windows 2008 only allows a user one single session over RDP. While in some instances this can be quite handy, if like me, you have multiple developers working on a single server, your frustration from being randomly logged out by a colleague can come to the boil. Quick and easy solution.
Log in to your Windows 2008/Windows 2008 R2 machine (it can be via RDP if you wish)
Open up Remote Desktop Session host Configuration
(this is under Start > Administrative Tools > Remote Desktop Services)
Double click on the centre section marked Edit Settings (note that the setting marked Restrict each user to a single session will be marked as Yes)
Now uncheck the checkbox marked Restrict each user to a single session and click OK
Close the window and you’re done! Now you’ll note the the same screen says No

1. Open command propmt
2.write gpedit.msc and open it
3.Go to computer configuration -> Administrative Tempalates -> Wondows Components
->Remote Desktop services -> Remote Desktop Session Host -> Connections.
4. Here Disble the below mentioned.

Restrict Remote Desktop Services user to a single remote.....

NOw goto command propmt and update the group ploicy using below mentioned command.

Goto command propmt and type -> gpupdate and enter it. it should be successfully applied.
