How to access Teamviewer on a windows server console

We would like to connect to a Teamviewer on a virtual machine running Windows Server. 2008 R2. If we set Teamviewer up for unattended access and then disconnect from an RDP session the Teamviewer sessioin becomes disconnected / offline. If we redirect the RDP session to the console using tscon we can see that the session is "active" but we still cannot connect to the Teamviewer session. Is there any way to solve this issue?

Re: How to access Teamviewer on a windows server console

You have to "Enable enhanced multi user support (for Terminal Server) under "Advanced options" in TeamViewer properties after installing/configuring "unattended access".

After configuring this you can see the "Multi user mode" explanation and the 2 ID's that your machine have been configured with by moving your mouse over the exclamation mark next to the "Your ID" field in the console/program window.

Basically ýou've got one ID for interaction with the logged in user (the one you've been using" which will dicconnect if the user closes the session/window...

And one ID for a secondary login/session that can be run without any prior login on the machine (it will require either another account than the active user account (both will be logged in to seperate sessions) or the login information's of the currently logged in user --> This will log that session off and you'll take that session over. Very much like RDP session behavior.
