Terminate Remote Desktop Sessions on remote/local host

There have been situations where a Windows Host is filled with the maximum number of allowed connections and you need to kick out one/more than one connected users.

We can achieve this by running the following commands in an elevated command line:

  1. Run the command “query session /server:servername”   ( The output of this command will be a list with the connected users plus their unique session ID’s ).query_session
  2. Run the command “reset session [ID] /server:servername”  ( where [ID] is the ID associated with the connected user that we want disconnect ).reset_session
