Terminal Server - stops accepting connections every so many days.
Posted on 2006-11-20
I have a Terminal Sever running on a Windows 2003 Server with SP1; everyone so many days 6 - 11 days I have to restart the server because one of the buildings connecting via Remote Desktop gets the server time out message and can not reconnect until the server itself is restarted. I have a VPN Tunnel connecting this site and the main site where the TS sits; to troubleshoot I restarted both firewalls - which didn't change anything, I reset and logged off the disconnected users as well and still nothing until the server is restarted. I can still get connected via Remote Desktop on site and I have another building that can also remain connected it is this one location that not matter what I try I can not get them to reconnect unless I restart the TS server itself. I just installed a service pack in regards to KB 923630 recently (11-14-06) and today the server needed a restart. I read about the SP1 on Windows 2003 server could cause a problem but you would think it would affect everyone trying to remote desktop not just one site; there is nothing in the event viewer that has been helpful either nothing happens that is the same everytime a restart needs to be done.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
