I recently took over a network that wasnt managed very well and I updated all the machines on the network. I also decided to do each server. I was remotely managing these servers via RDP. After upgrading a 2003 SBS server to SP2 with all critical updates I can no longer connect. Any ideas why? Remote Access is checked and domain admin is a selected user, firewall is off.

You can perform the steps locally and not necessarily remotely.

Sorry, but this didn't fix the issue, Dword was already set to 0.

Something I noticed after having the same issue, looking in the connection settings under "terminal services configuration", there was nothing there.  I had to create a new connection using default settings and I can RDP again.

I have ended up removing SP2 from this machine and everything is working just fine.

CPTCAFNE: I tried that prior to posting and still not luck.
