Remote Desktop session to Exchange Server as mylogin always gets logged off everynight ?

Hi All,

I'm having problem with my Remote Desktop session to Exchange Server as myself always gets logged off everynight ?

I need to scheduled Exchange Management Console to run after the office hours but it always failed since my RDP session gets logged off overnight, is there any way to configure it to stay logged on (Windows Server 2008) please ?

Thanks.

Why don't you just log back in? I'm sure there is a timer on sessions so they don't get left open and consume resources and become security threats.

To Set Timeout Options for Remote Desktop Connections
1.From your computer's Start menu, point to Programs, point to Admin Tools, and then click Terminal Services Configuration.
2.In the right pane of the window, click RDP-Tcp.
3.Click the Sessions tab.
4.Specify the values you want to use.

"Why don't you just log back in? " --> No I can't because there is a scheduled overnight job that must be initiated by the Exchange management console it must run under RDP session.

Hm.. I thought that there is a server setting to check ?

Perhaps you're just going to screen saver - which will end your RDP session.

@ Everyone: ok i found the GPO key which caused the issue, since this is applied to the Computer GPO, "Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows      Components > Terminal Services > Sessions"

does that means the server / computer must be restarted to make it in effect ?

Try a gpupdate /force. You may need a logoff, shouldn't need a reboot.

THanks for  the quick reply, however I also found out this key is enabled "Turn off background refresh of Group Policy Enabled ".

should I restart it still or log on/off  ?
