Remote desktop  services is currently busy

Last Modified: 2015-08-19

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
