A couple of useful tools for AD administrators

I just read in this week’s Windows IT Pro Windows Tips and Tricks Update about a couple of little-known tools from Microsoft which could potentially make life easier for many Active Directory (AD) administrators.

The remote control add-on for Active Directory users and computers (rcontrolad.exe) is a small add-on that provides an administrator with the option to right-click a computer account in the AD Users and Computers console and opening a terminal services/remote desktop connection to that computer. Remote control relies on the remote desktop connection software within Windows. Further information can be found at Windows IT Pro.

The limit logon tool (details at Windows IT Pro) can be used to limit the number of concurrent sessions which a user can maintain.
