Sudden Remote Desktop Connection problems to server 2003, reboot is only fix
Posted on 2007-08-03
We have recurring issue on multiple 2003 servers with Remote Desktop (or Terminal Services I guess). Occasionally I'll attempt to Remote Desktop to a server (using XP), I'll type the server name in the RDC box, and click connect. The server name box greys out as it always does as it tries to initiate the connection but after 2 seconds or so the server name box is active again as well as the connect button, but there is no error message or any other indication as to why it didn't connect. They only way to fix the issue is to remotely reboot the server after hours. I can ping the server, access files, the users have no issues with it. All indications show that it is running properly.
Has anyone run into this issue and do you have a solution?
