Clients being kicked out of Terminal Server sessions
Posted on 2006-04-07
I am running a Windows 2000 Terminal Server in our network. I built this machine and installed all the software and then added the Terminal services component. During the first week of use everything was fine. People could log in and do their work. The second week was when people started having problems. The basic scenario is that an individual will log on and then will lose the connection after a few seconds or wont be able to log on at all.
I went into the Terminal Services Manager and saw that their were multiple instances of the same client sessions (example..John Doe with 10 consecutive sessions). I terminated these and then refreshed but the same things happens...people get cut of or cant log on and multiple sessions appear for the same account.
How do I fix this? I want to allow everyone (approximately 9 clients) to be able to logon and have a session length of at least 5 hours BUT I want the sessionn to end once the log off. By the way, I made sure they werent just closing the terminal services window without actually logging off.
I am perplexed with this problem and need help. Thank You
