Microsoft, Server 2003 R2, Terminal Services Conncection and/or manipulation in snap-in console
Posted on 2007-10-08
I am working with a MS Server 2003 R2. It was setup as an application server using Terminal Services and Remote desktop. My workstations can no longer connect to it through remote Desktop. They all get the error:
The client could not connect to the remote computer.
Remote connections might not be enabled or the computer might be too busy to acceptnew connections
It is also possible that network problems are preventing your connection.
Please try connecting again later. If the problem continues to occur, contact your administrator
So I logged into the the Server in question, and went into the terminal services manager to check on it. It appears that everything is fine, everything was green. There were no connections for me to log out or disconnect. So I went into the services.msc and checked to make sure the services were in fact runnig. They were, but when I right clicked on them to try and restart or stop and start everything was greyed out so that I could not perform any of those task. I also attempted the Net Start and Net Stop on it but could not perform this on them either.
I found that it is default that I can not start or stop these services. So, I need to know what I can do to correct the connection issue.
