Your remote desktop session has ended, Win XP, VMWare

Hi there,

I got a weird issue, my Remote Desktop session ends just after a few seconds that I loged in....

I use Windows XP SP3 in the computer that's having the issue, it's a Virtual Machine under a ESX server.

I try some troubleshooting like upgrading to SP3, hot fix, even granting the user administrative privileges but without success....

So I'm wondering that maybe could be a VMware related Issue...

Could you guys help me out to fix this?

Thanks in advanced

Regards

Any chance that someone else is also RDP'ing into the box, knocking you off?

vmware is kind of a remote desktop and you're trying to remote desktop into it.  you're taking over your own console session and booting yourself off.

in the vmware window of xp, before you remote into it, can you log that user off and sit at a login prompt?  then remote desktop to it

I´m the only one who use that virtual pc, actually it was made for testing purposes, and the reason why i want to remote desktop a virtual desktop is because i need to access that pc from a live cd in another pc and that second pc can only access apps over rdp and i cannot install a client for a esx or something like that.

I got my physycal pc from that pc i´m trying to remote the virtual pc with xp, i can remote perfectly another virtual machine but with win 2k3, the last thing that i want to do is to create another virtual windows xp machine because i got a lot of configuration in the current one.

Thanks for your help guys.

Right now I'm testing the connection with RDP from the Physical Win XP PC through Win XP VM because the goal of this is to connect from a Physical PC with a live CD to the Win XP VM....

Any ideas of this issue guys?
