I'm trying to shadow a console session. For now this works fine when using shadow ID on the commandline directly on the Windows 2008 R2 server. So I'm able to view the remote session of the console in this way.
When I try to do the same using mstsc this does not work and I'm getting the message 'Access is denied' while I think all rights are OK and I'm not using the multi-monitor option on the Display tab of mstsc.
The mstsc session is being started from Windows 7 SP1. Example:
mstsc /v:10.1.1.1 /shadow:4
I also already changed some group policies to enable
Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Connections\Set rules for remote control of Remote Desktop Services user sessions
Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Remote Session Environment\Set compression algorithm for RDP data
The two changes above made the shadow directly from the server's commandline possible but apparently I still got 'Access is denied' after getting it to work on the server. Anyone has another idea on this?
