(PC) Support tip - When enabling Terminal Services in PC, new terminal sessions not getting created

In a Performance Center loadtest when enabling Terminal Services option at the 'design loadtest' level and choose "Create New Sessions" option, no sessions are opening up. Also this screen does not provide an option to enter user credentials for creating new Terminal Sessions

The reason for this is Performance Center always try to create the terminal sessions using IUSR_METRO or any other PC service account as defined in the PC system. Also when launching the sessions automatically, it cannot handle any popups or legal disclaimers that might need user interaction. So these popups need to be suppressed or handled outside of this feature when opening a terminal session. Only then the "Create New Terminal Sessions" option will work as expected from PC
