Creating Virtual (Ghost/Fake) Monitors in a headless server (Windows Server 2016) RRS feed

  • Question

  • For the project I am working on ,
    I have a server with Windows Server 2016 OS with no monotors attached to it. 
    I have a client which has Windows 10 Os, connected to the server through REALVNC.
    The client has two monitors, each 1920*1080.

    For this solution to work, I need two virtual monitors at the server. 
    Is this possible?
    In Windows 7, I was able to add virtual monitors through 'Adjust Screen Resolution' window, (Detect > Multiple Displays -- Try connect anywat on VGA)
    But when I tried this on Server 2012 system, I did not get this option after clicking 'Detect

  • Hi there!

    Is your Windows Server 2016 a physical server or a virtual machine?

    Have you made sure that your Windows Server 2016 has the latest video card drivers installed? (If this is a physical server, try downloading from the manufacturer's website).

    If the server is physical you might also want to check the BIOS settings.

    Best regards,
