Hi,

I am using Windows 2008 r2 .... without CItrix ....

I need to know exactly why this message occurs on remote desktop
reconnects and how to fix it. I have to reset the remote machine to
restart the OS to get back in.

I use remote desktop just for administrative tasks

"The task you are trying to do can't be completed because remote desktop
services is currently busy. Please try again in a few minutes. Other
users should still be able to log on."

Thank you

Racy

Try to clean boot your local system and then try. You can refer the following URL for clean reboot:

Sounds like you have the default 2 license issue with TS. Windows server comes with 2 free client license for RDP/TS. Make sure to log off your sessions, rather than disconnect which in turns frees up the license. You can remove the disconnected clients from the server console task manager>Users.
The request to wait, is to allow other users to log off. Disconnecting/re-connecting maintains the 'licensed' connections

Try to access server using console option..

If you have Windows XP local system, type the following in run menu:

mstsc /v:YOUR_IP /console

If you have Windows 2008 or Windows 7 local system, run the following from Run menu:

mstsc /v:YOUR_IP /admin

This is caused when you "x" out of an RDP session and the session is trying to save your profile.  When you log on do you see a status messages saying "applying group policy profile service"  or something similar to that?

Hi

We also have the same problem on Windows Server 2008 R2 (64bit) standard running XenApp 6.5.

I've also tried the hotfix above and receive the message that the package is not supported on the platform... I even tried both x64 and x86 packages out of desperation.

Has anyone found a fix other than the hotfix?

Any help, advice or solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Neil

I'm having this exact same issue. However, when I attempt to install http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2383928 I received a message that this update does not apply to my computer.

Has anyone experienced this issue recently? My servers are 2008 R2 Standard running XenApp 6.5 with all latest updates from both Citrix & MS installed. They are also VMs on VMWare ESX 5.5, with all updates applied.
