Terminal Server going down
Posted on 2009-04-23
Have a huge issue with our terminal server
Yesterday people were working and the server was running fine and then all of a sudden all users got kicked out of the server.
It exhibited some very strange problems. You could ping the server but you could not connect to the server via RDP. You could type the unc path of the server and a window would pop up like it was going to work but it just did the flashlight thing looking for the folders. Also tried to go on our DC and manage the machine, you could type in the server name and the management would connect however if you clicked any of the plus boxes the manage window would freeze and you would have to end task.
Now when this happened yesterday we just reboot the server by holding in the power button and powering it back on and everything was fine thinking it was just a system blip. But today the same exact problem came up and we had to do the same thing.
Once we got the server back up I checked in the event viewer showed no errors out of the ordinary and I don't really know where to go from here because I don't know what to look at. This cannot happen we have client connecting to the terminal server at all hours of the day/night and this system cannot go own like this.
Any ideas would help a great bit.
