Manage Multiple Dynamic User Sessions in Windows Server with VirtualUI's New Features

VirtualUI “Create users on-demand” and “Predefined Users” Configuration

In VirtualUI we have created two new options in order to be able to establish multiple sessions with dynamic users in Windows Server 2022 and Windows Server 2019 (Since June 2022 update).
In the ‘Sessions’ tab of VirtualUI’s configuration manager, you will find “Create users on-demand” and “Predefined users”:

Create users on-demand

This option will let VirtualUI create the users. Each time VirtualUI requires to open a new session, it will create a user following the “Username prefix” you have established and it will
make this user part of the group you specify in the box “Add to group”:

If you set the prefix “TestUser”. VirtualUI will create the user “TestUser”, “TestUser2”, “TestUser3, and so on.

Bear in mind that if you need to use domain users along with this option, you will have to specify the domain in the prefix, for instance, “Domain\TestUser”.

You will also need to configure VirtualUI’s service to logon as a domain user, this user must have permission to create domain users.

To update the service’s logon user, open the services panel (services.msc) and go to the properties of the Thinfinity VirtualUI’s service:

Once there, go to the tab ‘Log on’, and enter the information of the user:

Predefined users

The predefined user's option, will allow adding existing users of your domain or local server.

You can either add them from a custom list or users with a prefix.

Custom List

In the custom list, you can add users individually by clicking on ‘Add’, or importing them from a list.
The list must be a txt file, following these formats:

  1. For local users:

  1. For domain users:

Users with prefix

This option is similar to “Create users on-demand” only that you must create the users upfront.
Bear in mind all the users must have the same password.
VirtualUI will start the first session using the number 1 and gradually increase based on the number of connections/users.
For instance, if you configured the prefix “TestUser”, the first session VirtualUI will attempt to start is “TestUser1”.
