Hi there.

Later this morning I'm going to a client site to troubleshoot a TS issue. Basicaly theres one Windows 2003 TS that about 20 users connect to to use one application. Its been working fine for months however the last 2 days they've had to manually reboot it in the morning as connections are being refused from the remote sites.

Before i get onsite what should I be looking out for?

    Have you licenced the Termianl Server ?
    You get a grace period (120 days i think), during which you can use TS, after that it needs to be licenced.

    Not yet licenced but they have been ordered from reseller and due anyday. However its still well within the grace period? Only up 60 odd days so I dont think its anything to do with that

    Accepted Solution

    Disabling automatic updates has resolved it for them, just going to do monthy manual updates instead. Requesting close of question
