Multiple concurrent RDP sessions on Azure Windows VM

I have created a new Windows VM, enabled RDP, create a local user account in VM and also an Azure AD account.
I am able to individually connect to VM using RDP with admin account and Azure AD accounts, but server is forcing us to disconnect other user and always restricting to keep only one active user session on server.

We are planning to have 4 user accounts connect and work parallely on this server. Please advice how we can get this resolved.

Thanks

Good day,

check the following explanation on how to change the default behavior and allow multiple sessions:

Note! remember that you must have licence for extra sessions!

Hi Dave,

Is there anyway to get more than 3 RDP connections on Windows 10 Pro VM or on a Windows (Windows 10 Enterprise for Virtual Desktops) ?

You will need to procure RDS Client Access Licenses from a Microsoft Partner or Microsoft Reseller. These are special licenses as they need to have software assurance attached to them since they are CALs for a VM running on Azure. This is a Microsoft requirement that you cannot get around. You can buy these in one year, two year, or three year options.
