Delete a Remote Desktop Services Connection

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can delete a connection on the RD Session Host server.

ImportantImportant
When you delete a connection on the RD Session Host server, all users using that connection to access the RD Session Host server will be immediately disconnected from the RD Session Host server. Before you delete the connection, you should send a message to users connected to the RD Session Host server to warn them that they will be disconnected from the RD Session Host server.

For more information about sending a message to a user connected to an RD Session Host server, see the topic "Send a Message to a User" in the Remote Desktop Services Manager Help in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Use the following procedure to delete a connection on the RD Session Host server.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the RD Session Host server that you plan to configure, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477.

To delete a connection on the RD Session Host server
  1. On the RD Session Host server, open Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration. To open Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration.

  2. Under Connections, click the name of the connection (for example, RDP-Tcp) that you want to delete.

  3. On the Action menu, click Delete, and then click Yes. The connection is immediately disabled, and all users using that connection will be immediately disconnected from the RD Session Host server.

    Users will not be able to reconnect to their sessions until you create a new connection that uses the same connection protocol and network adapter as the connection that was deleted. For more information about creating a new connection, see Create a Remote Desktop Services Connection.

You can temporarily prevent users from connecting to the RD Session Host server by doing either of the following:
