How to allow users to log into multiple Remote Desktop Services sessions concurrently.

The default behavior of Remote Desktop Services is that if a user is logged into a session and the user tries to log in to another session using the same account, the first session will be disconnected. If you want to enable RDS users to be able to be logged into multiple sessions concurrently using the same account, set the Set fSingleSessionPerUser registry key to a value of 0. This key is found under HLKM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server.
