How-to set Session Time Limits

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Remote Application Server

Information

Setting up session time limits currently is not possible in Parallels Remote Application Server. We would recommend to use Microsoft's GPO as the more flexible way.

Detailed information available at Microsoft TechNet:

Configure Timeout and Reconnection Settings for Remote Desktop Services Sessions

To set the time limit for sessions you need edit GPO settings. On your Terminal Server start gpedit.msc and go to :

Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Session Time Limits

Set time limit for active but idle Remote Desktop Services sessions

This policy setting allows you to specify the maximum amount of time that an active emote Desktop Services sessions can be idle (without user input) before it is automatically disconnected.

Set time limit for active Remote Desktop Services sessions

This policy setting allows you to specify the maximum amount of time that a Remote Desktop Services session session can be active before it is automatically disconnected.

Set time limit for disconnected sessions

This policy setting allows you to configure a time limit for disconnected Terminal Services sessions.

End session when time limits are reached

This policy setting allows you to specify whether to terminate a timed-out Terminal Services session instead of disconnecting it.

Set time limit for log off of RemoteApp sessions

This policy setting allows you to specify how long a user's RemoteApp session will remain in a disconnected state after closing all RemoteApp programs before the session is logged off from the RD Session Host server.

NOTE: To force new GPOs configured, execute the following command in Command Prompt as Administrator:

gpupdate /force
