I have installed and deployed a remote desktop server in a hyper-v clustered env.

My question is - Is it normal to be able to view an active session by right clicking on the host VM and connecting (without entering password etc) I think I may have setup TS incorrectly.

What you are seeing is the server "console". Just as you can go to a physical server and view what's on the screen, Hyper-V manager allows the same thing. My guess is the user is choosing to log into the console.

Ok that makes sense, how to I prevent the user from accessing the console, as I cannot login a the administrator and make a change if people are logging in etc. Ok I've just had a think about it and I am going to apply a GP for this purpose. – Rors May 10 '12 at 8:50
