Shadow Remote Desktop Session (RDS) Without Permission Prompt

If you want to shadow the RDS Server console (session 0) in an RDS Server session, and you do not want to be prompted for permission, set the local Group Policy on the server that is running Remote Desktop Services.

To shadow other sessions, in the RDP-TCP Properties dialog box, on the Remote Control tab, click to clear the Require user's permission checkbox. This does not affect the console session.

To remote control the console with no prompt for approval:

  1. Open the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) on the server that is running Remote Desktop Services.
  2. Under Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Windows Components, and then click Remote Desktop Services.
  3. Under the Remote Desktop Session Host > Connections, right-click Sets rules for remote control of Remote Desktops Services user sessions and click Edit.
  4. Select Enabled. Under Options, select Full Control without the user's permission.
  5. Click OK and quit Group Policy Editor.

Once this has been set, you can go to the user's session in the ControlUp Real-Console, right-click and select Remote Desktop Services\Shadow Session.
