Hi Marco

I assume you only need the active sessions. There is a batch script which gives you all the active sessions and with the returnvalue of active sessions I used that for a different purpose in the past. You can the use the sensor "exe/script" to get that done.


depending if you have a Citrix or rdp connections, you have to change "rdp-tcp#" inside the script to "ica-tcp#".

hope that helps.

regards Thomas

The WMI Terminal Services (Win2008+) sensor should work on Win 2012 Terminal Server as well!

Indeed, i just tested it and it works for Server 2012 RDS hosts as well. maybe Firewalled or WMI requests blocked.

try" winrm quickconfig" in the commandline on the server. maybe that helps.
