Enable multiple RDP connections per user in Windows Server 2012.

By default, Windows 2012 servers allow a single Remote Desktop session (exactly the same way as it was in Windows 2008).
If only one session is available and you take over another person’s live session, you may choose to enable multiple RDP sessions.

Below, you can find steps for enabling multiple sessions:
1. Open the start screen (press the Windows key) and type gpedit.msc and open it.
2. Go to Computer Configuration => Administrative Templates => Windows Components => Remote Desktop Services => Remote Desktop Session Host => Connections.
3. Set Restrict Remote Desktop Services user to a single Remote Desktop Services session to Disabled.
4. Double click Limit number of connections and set the RD Maximum Connections allowed to 999999 (maximum allowed).
