Intermittent problem occuring where I cannot LOG ON to a server at Console or Remote Desktop, message reads "The requested operation cannot be completed because the Terminal Connection is currently busy processing a connection operation"

The only thing I can do is HARD reset the server....eeek
What is cause and is there any way of resetting this without a hard off switch?

There's a hotfix for winlogon.exe that's supposed to resolve this. I think you have to request it though.

P.S. this only started happening when I moved my client laptop to Windows 7 using the Remote Desktops
Version: 6.1.7600.16385 which allows me to acces multiple servers.

"You create a logoff script in the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC).
This script includes an executable graphical user interface (GUI) application."

I have not done any of those things.

Someone on this thread used that hotfix to resolve your issue. The KB article iteslf doesn't mention this issue specifically, but sometimes the hotfixes also have an "off label" indication.

Well I found a REMOTE CONSOLE software called DAMEWARE.
http://www.dameware.com/products/dmrc/

This allowed me to install the remote software from behind the Server lock out, and then I was able to log on as normal and then log the server off, clearing the lockout.
I will use this software now for remote access as it would appear that the RDP console MSC is not completely compatible with Windows 7.
