Terminal services manager and Windows 7

I just found out that Terminal services manager does not exist in Windows 7. But fear not, the Remote Desktop Services Manager will do the trick. It is included in the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7, which can be downloaded from here.

After some serious googling, I was also able to figure out how to actually enable the feature, in "Programs and Features", "Turn Windows Features on or off":

Go to "Remote Server Administation Tools", "Role Administration Tools", and enable "Remote Desktop Services Tools".


There! Now you'll find the Remote Desktop Services Manager in your start menu — and can start kicking out stale remote desktop connections from your servers. :)

  3. Do you need to install the whole thing (240mb or so), or is there a smaller installer just for this that you can find in the download?

  4. Hi Hari,

    I don't know if there might be a smaller installer embedded in the downlaod, but I would recommend installing the whole thing to ensure that you don't break break any updates from Microsoft.

  5. I tried looking anyway and didn't find anything obvious, so installed the wholething. Thanks for your guide.

  6. Thanks for this! If the progrma doesn't appear in the start menu after intalling the package, just type "remote" in the search box, and it will show up in there.

  9. This does show up but I am unable to do a "Run as" option to open the exe.

    I dont want to have to log off everytime I wasnt to run this.

    Any ideas why this is not available?

  10. I take this back. I just realised that you need to open RDCM and then add the server name. then on left hand side you right click and choose Connect As. Very useful..

    2. Click "from here" link at the top of the post to download that package. Install the package. Follow the rest of the directions...

  26. Yes! Thank you!

  27. If you don't want to install this just to kill RD sessions then you can do it from a command line.
    C:> query session /server:yourservername
    Look for a connection with a 'STATE' of 'Active' - it will have a numeric ID.
    C:> reset session X /server:yourservername
    Where 'X' is the numeric ID you chose to terminate.

  28. من منا لا يدرك أهمية الغاز!!؛ فتواجده في المؤسسات والمصانع والمنازل؛
    أمر لابد منه بلا منازع؛ وذلك لأهمية تواجده القصوى؛ فمعظم المؤسسات والمصانع تستخدم الغاز المركزي
    ؛ لتلبية كافة حاجياتها الضرورية واليومية لاستخدامات الغاز؛
    ونظرا لأهمية الغاز؛ فهناك العديد من شركات تمديد الغاز المركزى؛ أخذت على عاتقها تقديم خدمات تمديد خطوط الغاز المركزى؛ وصيانه خطوط الغاز
    ؛ وكشف تسربات الغاز؛ بالإضافة إلى إصلاح خطوط الغاز؛
    ولكن معظم شركات تمديد الغاز المركزى بالرياض؛ لا تقدم كل هذه الخدمات بجودة عالية؛ وبأسعار خيالية
    ؛ مما يجعلك تطلب خدمة صيانه خطوط الغاز؛ أو كشف تسربات الغاز
    ؛ وإصلاح خطوط الغاز؛ من شركة تمديد الغاز أخرى؛ تضمن لك تقديم خدمات عالية الجودة؛ وذلك لتفادي مخاطر الغاز.
