What happened to mstsc /console?!

September 26, 2012

Yeah I finally figured out that in December of 2007 our good friends at Microsoft changed the Remote Desktop Client (mstsc) and removed /console and replaced it with /admin. Instead of either keeping both, or having an alert stating that /console doesn’t work anymore. Instead it just logs you into any session that is available. If there are two sessions in use, and you try to login to the third “console” session 0, you won’t be able to without using /admin. Just keep that in mind the next time you need to RD to a server.
