Extremely short Terminal Server lockout

When logging in to a terminal services session on a remote Domain controller, I am always able to successfully log in. However, the lockout is being invoked after less than a minute of activity, regardless of account being used. I do not have this extremely short lockout configured anywhere in Terminal Services Configuration, Terminal Services Manager, or Group Policy. I can't think of any other place where this value could be configured. Also, I see no events in the security event log that would indicate any problem. There is an avent 1030 in the Application event viewer: "Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects," but I don't think it is related, since I believe that is a known error and has an associated hotfix. Any ideas?

Check the settings on the Sessions tab for your user account properties in AD. You can set timeout and session limits in there.

Does this occur when logged in to your TS via any workstation?

rjwesley: Yes, it happens from any workstation. Also, I have several other remote domain controllers, none of which has this problem.

What is your screen saver timeout set for on those systems? (Out of curiosity)

Can you have someone test the terminal server connection that is physically at the remote site, does the lockout occur in that situation as well.
Are you using custom ports for each of your servers for terminal server connections?

The solution was related to our drive encryption utility being incorrectly configured.
