    We have a terminal server, i some user always forget to logoff when they
    go home. I'd like to enable something to make them logoff automatically
    on 30 min idle.

    Any help is apreciated

  2. Hi,

    Open Terminal Services Configuration and right click on RDP-Tcp. Now go to
    Sessions tab and set your preferred settings...

    User01 has (at the moment)

    End a disconnected session - 30 min
    Active session idle - never
    Idle session limit - 30 min
    When a session limit is reached or connection is broken
    -End session

    User01 closed his session about 4 hour ago, and his session is still
    Disconnected session, not logoffed :(

  5. I don't think that new settings apply to existing sessions (sessions made
    before you changed your settings). New settings will apply to any sessions
    made after configuration changes...

    it was applied before User01 logged in

  7. Did you select "Override users settings"?

  8. Can you temporary set these settings globally on the server to se if it
    solves the problem?

    I am not aware of an option that would do what you want selectively. I
    always use global settings. One option would be to use another RDP server
    for another set of users?
