I have a VPS which is limited to 2 concurrent TS sessions. At one point I was locked out from signing in, even though all my previous sessions were closed.
The provider indicated that the other sessions were still running, and they believe that I didn't actually "log off", so even if I exited the remote desktop client the server would still believe the connection was live.
I've never had this issue with a regular computer, when I kill the connection in any manner it always disconnects gracefully and doesn't lock me out.
- Does Windows 2003 have an issue with logging off properly when remote desktopping into it?
- How would I clear this error, or in other words if I need to can I kick off any current connections given that I have admin access?
- How do I check how many sessions are being used (assuming I can log in on a session)
- Can I load VNC as a 'backup' tool, or what other tools can I use to more fully protect myself from this issue?
