Managing Logons From Client Sessions

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Remote Application Server 15.0

The logon management feature allows you to enable or disable logons from client sessions. The feature performs the same tasks as the change logon command-line utility.

To manage logons from client sessions:

  1. In the Parallels Remote Application Server Console, navigate to Farm / / Terminal Servers.
  2. Select a terminal server and click Tasks > Control.
  3. The Control menu item has the following submenu items:
    • Enable logons — enables logons from client sessions, but not from the console. This option performs the same action as the change logon /enable command.
    • Disable logons and reconnections — disables subsequent logons from client sessions, but not from the console. Does not affect currently logged on users. This option performs the same action as change logon /disable command.
    • Disable logons until server reboot — disables logons from new client sessions until the computer is restarted, but allows reconnections to existing sessions. Same action as the change logon /drainuntilrestart command.

To see the current logon control mode for a terminal server, right-click it and point to Control in the context menu. The checked-out option indicates the current logon control mode of the selected terminal server. To do this check from the command line, execute the change logon /QUERY command on the server.

Please also note the following:

  • When applying a logon control mode on a server, ensure that the agent state is updated accordingly.
  • You must set the logon control options for the servers one-by-one. If you need to do it for a group of servers, you can use the scheduler.
  • There's no option for disabling logons from new client sessions but allowing reconnections to existing sessions (change logon /DRAIN) because its behaviour is identical to the Disable logons until server restart option (change logon /DRAINUNTILRESTART)
  • Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Remote Desktop Services / Remote Desktop Session Host / Connection / Allow users to connect remotely using remote desktop services must be set to Not configured, otherwise it takes precedence.
