You can rename a connection on the RD Session Host server. You might want to rename a connection to make the name more descriptive.

The connection name appears when you view session information in Remote Desktop Services Manager.

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.
