Remote Desktop Console/Admin Session Times Out
Posted on 2010-09-08
We currently have a number of servers running Windows Server 2003 and Server 2008. When I connect to the 2003 servers using the /console or /admin (depending on version of RD) switch using Remote Desktop, my idle sessions never expire. I can leave the session up for days if I choose. However, my sessions will expire when connecting to Server 2008 just as if I was connected to a regular session. The error is: "Your Remote Desktop session ended because the remote computer didn't receive any input from you". Anyone know why this might be happening?
We use Group Policy to control time-outs and disconnects of our sessions, but those only apply to non-console sessions, so they should have no effect.
