Dealing with Users with Multiple Accounts

    Question

  • Hi,

    In our domain we have some users with multiple accounts because they have different roles within the company.  One example of this is the administrators.  They have a basic user account for daily activities and then an administrator account for other purposes.

    We have an RDS license server and session hosts set up.  We are issuing per user licenses.  In this situation those users are being issued two licenses.  How should we deal with this situation?

    Thanks

  • Hello,

    When admin users are connecting to your servers they could use the mstsc.exe /admin option. When using this option a license is not required

  • Robert,

    Thanks for the response.  I was not aware that the two license free administrative sessions were still available after installation of the session host role.

    Thanks
