VBScript: Remote Desktop Disconnected, Internal Error 50331688

Posted on 2011-04-22

We recently migrated from Windows 2003 Server to SBS 2008.  We are having a lot of issues after the migration.  One of them is I cannot connect to the server remotely.  I was able to connect the first couple of times, but now it gives me a VBScript: Remote Desktop Disconnected.  "An internal error has occurred (error 50331688)."  I googled the error and it seems to be a popular one but with very few solutions to fix it.  I need to access the server and workstations remotely because I live in another city and the only way to fix things, if I can't access remotely, is to do it on site.

    Thanks for the help everyone.  All of your help and efforts in finding a speedy solution was much appreciated.  Any way I found a solution to the problem and resolved it on my own.  Believe it or not Microsoft had a solution through their knowledge base.  Below is a link to the solution.  It was a SSL cert issue.  For some reason there was no SSL cert selected.  It some how became deselected.  I was working in IIS so that's probably when it happened.
