    We have just acquired a Quad-core Xeon, 4GB RAM dedicated server running Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 32bit. We are using the server to run game and VoIP servers mainly in consoles. This requires that a user be logged in to launch the servers. We access the server via remote desktop.

    I have set the server to automatically login on boot using the registry method so that if the server crashes when I am not around the server can restart itself and re-run all the software (using the start menu "Startup" folder).

    The problem is that when I login via Remote Desktop the OS creates a NEW SESSION under the same username rather than just connect to the existing session. Yesterday we had three sessions running on the server all using the same username and so each of them was running duplicate apps. This was because the automatic login method created a session, and both myself and another admin logged into the server via remote desktop creating three sessions in parallel.

    How do we force the server to accept only one session per username?
