When you go to start > run > and type in tsadmin and hit enter, you get an error.
At start > run > type tsadmin.msc
tsadmin was an execuatable program in Server 2003, so excluding the extension didn’t matter – you just type tsadmin and it would work. In Windows Server 2008, it’s now an MMC Snap-In, so you need to use the “.msc” extension if you are going to run it. Nothing has changed, it still works basically the same. The real name of the Snap-In is called “Remote Desktop Services Manager”. There aren’t any new bells and whistles, from what I can tell. The only action that looks interesting is the ability to import the farm details from an RD Connection Manager. But let’s be honest, we really only use tsadmin.msc to see who the heck forgot to log out of a server and then kick them out because we’re more important.
