RDP Connection FAILS

Hi ,

I have a server that is running windows server 2008 R2 and this server is a domain member.

I'm having issues in establish RDP Session to this server.

When i tried to RDP to this server it comes up with the login screen and then I can see the windows welcome screen and then the connection gets disconnected. Then when i try again , it dosent even get me to the login screen besides , shows "connection to the remote machine is not possible due to the below reason".

I've installed all the Microsoft updates and restarted the machine but the issues still persists.

Please advice me on this issue.

Did you tried login to the console?

mstsc /admin
Check for the RDP version installed on your system.

Use RDP 5.1 and above version
Can you ell us more about the environment, eg both RDP client and server on same network? What OS runs on the RD client? Can you ping continuously with larger packets?
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

You can also try to roll back the video card driver on the host. If RDP is ok after this, update the driver from the vendors website.

mstsc /admin   is working fine without any issues now.

if your RDP client is old one, upgrade to 7.0 and try.
