RDP to 2003r2 x86 Std only works in Console mode.
Posted on 2009-07-07
I have a Windows 2003 R2 server that I can log on directly to the console, RDP in via console, but if I RDP in on a normal RDP Session, it fails.
You're prompted to log in, and the screen changes to blue, like you'd normally expect, but after about a minute of staring at an empty desktop, it simply closes the connection.
There are no errors in the app or system logs. I enabled Terminal Services, then disabled Terminal Services, but am still having the same problem. RDP is enabled, and I have rights, but not sure where to go from here. If I watch Task Manager, I can see the new sessions listed as Active when trying to RDP in, but then they just disappear like the user logged off.
