The description for Event ID ( 54 ) in Source ( rdpdr ) cannot be found.

We have an Event ID 54 that keeps appearing our System event logs on almost all of our windows 2003 terminal servers. I have googled it but can’t find very useful information.

Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      rdpdr
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      54
Description:
The description for Event ID ( 54 ) in Source ( rdpdr ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: \Device\RdpDrDvMgr.
Data:
0000: 00 00 00 00 01 00 54 00   ......T.
0008: 00 00 00 00 36 00 04 80   ....6..¿

Based on what I have found:

\Device\RdpDrDvMgr - is the RDP/Terminal server device redirector

Error 54 seems to be a generic "something went wrong trying to redirect a device."  What I can't tell is was the device on the server or the client.

Do you have any unusual devices on either the server or the client, like say a finger print reader?

Thank you for the tip. Is there is any tool or log that can help us to find it?

From what I have read it seems that these errors come in pairs.  One will have \Device\RdpDrDvMgr as part of the event information and the other will have something else.  The something else is supposed to be directly related to whatever is causing the problem.
