Multi-session Windows 10 EVD (Enterprise for Virtual Desktop) Behaves like a "Single Session" Windows 10 Enterprise

Multi-session Windows 10 Enterprise Virtual Desktop (EVD) behaves like a "Single Session" Windows 10 Enterprise

If a Multiple Activation Key (MAK) is erroneously applied to a multi-session Windows 10 EVD, deployed from Azure Marketplace, the OS does not allow multiple users to connect at the same time. This can be repaired by resetting to Key Management Service (KMS) activation with the proper Windows 10 EVD key.

Note: These command cannot convert a single-session Windows 10 Enterprise OS to multi-session. This can only be used to repair what originally was a multi-session Windows 10 EVD OS.

To convert a single-session Windows 10 Enterprise OS to multi-session:

  1. In the EVD, open the command prompt as admin.

  2. Run the following commands:

    • slmgr /ipk <KmsKey>

    • slmgr /ckms

    • slmgr /skms kms.core.windows.net

    • slmgr /ato
