This is the second time it has happened. Rebooting the server helps but the problem has resurfaced a second time and need to figure out why.

Cannot logon via rdp or at the console.

Can you check here.... "Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options | Interactive Logon: Do not require CTRL-ALT-DEL" and see what it is set to....?

it sounds like a possible lockup on the explorer shell, i presume you still can get to the unc path and all but rdp or console does not give you any option to logon? if you could remotely mmc the server and try to see what services might have stopped? or see event viewer to see what has coursed an issue on the server that might be the starting point. else reboot the server and logon to look through the event logs for any clues it might have.

I already tried the above suggestions. RDP does not work. I used the management console to access the event viewer and services etc. All the usual services are up and the event viewer doesnt show any thing that would explain this.

I rebooted the server in the end and it has resolved the problem for now.
