I am using windows server 2003 running terminal services. now the problem am facing is that when a users session is terminated, the user loses whatever application he was working on. How can i fix this?
By default, when a user disconnects from their remote desktop session on a Server 2003 terminal server all of the applications running in their session will continue to run, and their session will not end (until restart or manual logoff/reset). There
are session timeout and behavior that may be configured that will change the default behavior, for example, by ending a disconnected session after a certain amount of time.
Please open Terminal Services Configuration (tscc.msc), double-click RDP-Tcp. On the Sessions tab, please verify that the two Override user settings are
In Active Directory Users and Computers, please double-click on the user's account and examine the Sessions tab. Make sure that the timeouts are set to Never, and it is set to Disconnect when a limit is reached.
Please verify in any Group Policy Objects that are applicable to your TS and/or your users and make sure that the timeouts and limit behavior is configured correctly. There are settings in both Computer and User configuration.
After making the above changes please run a gpupdate /force on your TS, log on with a user account that
does not currently have a session on the server, and then test by disconnecting. The session and the applications running within it should continue running after the disconnect.
