XA78 - Open multiple desktops - single icon


Dear all,


I am sure I am missing something obvious, but how do you allow a user to open multiple sessions of the same published 2012r2 desktop in XA 7.8?


ie, by clicking on the same icon in Storefront twice  and getting two separate desktops?


I've read the threads about the "Maximum Desktops per user" option being taken away in 7.8, and the ability to give the user a 2nd desktop through the 'desktops' tab on the Delivery Group, but I don't want to give them a 2nd icon, just let them launch multiple sessions from the same icon (Which is how it works under XA65 & WI, even with workspace control enabled)


set-BrokerEntitlementPolicyRule "DeliveryGroupName" -SessionReconnection DisconnectedOnly doesn't seem to make any difference either.

Ah, OK, thanks Carl, I never got round to ticking the box in 7.6 & .7.7, before upgrading to 7.8 and the box disappearing!


pc-dok, yes, I would like to have more than published desktop per user, but with only one icon.. I will test with workspace control disabled, but then again I like having that too... I guess cake and eat it was taken away with the new versions.

I know this post is pretty old, but did you find a solution?

We have the same Problem with Xendesktop 7.15


- Set-BrokerEntitlementPolicyRule "DeliveryGroup" -SessionRecoonection DisconnectedOnly run on DG

- GPO RDS Setting "Restrict eah user to a single session" - Disabled


Doesn't work neither on Webinterface nor on SF

Webinterface Settings are the same as for the old XA 6.5 farm where it works perfectly.

Not matter if I disable or enable Workspace Control, makes no difference

I believe you need to use -SessionReconnection SameEndpointOnly if you want each signon to get a unique session.


I am actually having the same problem but with published Applications. This setting doesn't work for applications.

I got this to work by doing the following:

Open Powershell ISE as admin on the Delivery Controller.


Copy and paste the following commands and execute:


$Current = Get-BrokerEntitlementPolicyRule
foreach ($name in $Current) {
Set-BrokerEntitlementPolicyRule -Name $name.Name -SessionReconnection DisconnectedOnly


Now you can launch multiple sessions of the published desktop


For Published applications you run:

$Current = Get-BrokerAppEntitlementPolicyRule
foreach ($name in $Current) {
Set-BrokerAppEntitlementPolicyRule -Name $name.Name -SessionReconnection DisconnectedOnly
