Stop Server Manager from showing at logon | RDS

I recently configured a new RDS solution for a client where Server Manager was always popping up when logging in.  I didn't want this to happen for users, so I needed to make the required registry change for this to no longer happen:


Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ServerManager

There should already be a DWORD called DoNotOpenServerManagerAtLogon which is set to Decimal: 0.  Simply change this over to Decimal: 1 (as opposed to Hexadecimal: 1) to stop this from happening again.

You will still be able to open up Server Manager, however this won't appear automatically when logging in.
