How to check Windows terminal server logs
Windows Terminal Services, renamed to Windows Remote Desktop Services in Windows 2008 machines and beyond, allows employees to connect remotely to a Windows machine to access critical company resources or services from any device, any time. It's important for administrators to monitor these remote connections and understand who is using their Windows terminal servers, when, and why. This is possible by going through Windows Terminal Services logs and following the steps below:
- Open Event Viewer.
- Navigate to Application and Service Logs → Microsoft → Windows → TerminalServices-Gateway (or) TerminalServices-Operational.
