Can not use RDP to login to server anymore - get "No Terminal Services Server Available" error

Recently I have been unable to RDP into my local server because I get an error that says "No Terminal Services Server Availalbe" error.  I was under the impression that every server came with at least one Terminal Services connection.  How can I re-establish RDP connectivity with my server?

RD is disabled by default:

Right click "My Comptuer" icon> Select Properties>>Select the "Remote" tab>>about half way down, enable "allow users to connect to this computer remotely"

Then, define who you want to allow by selecting the "Select Remote Users" button.

You imply this worked before. If so have you installed any updates lately? There is a known issue where a few Windows updates that require a reboot appear as if the server is working properly, but they actually require a second reboot to re-establish terminal services connectivity.
There are also specific issues with SP2:

Also, check the terminal services service, go to

administrative tools-->services and make sure the service is up and running.  In windows 2003 server you can't restart the service, the server has to be rebooted.
