This is a really wierd senerio. As of 1 day ago my administrative remote desktop from a xp machine to my windows 2003 server worked just fine. Now all of a sudden when I log in, it logs me in (I see loading your personal settings etc screen) then logs me right back out immediately (saving your personal settings, logging you off) screen. I can connect with remote desktops.msc as long as i connect to the console, or remote desktop app with the /console switch, but this is as far as I seem to be able to get. PLEASE help me, i have tried every kind of different configuration, security setting, etc etc. I even have reinstalled the OS itself, and it still does this. Im sure its a really simple fix, but cant find info anywhere on this suvject. I do not have terminal services installed, but according to Microsoft I dont need to for the 2 concurrent administrative sessions it allows by default. I am running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise. Any help IS greatly appreciated.
