    Is that server responding to ping ? If so, looks like RDP protocol is hung and does not respond to be available for RDC

    Do you have access over iLO card to physical server to reboot it or over vCenter in case of virtual ?

    In this case server reboot would be required to fix RDP issue

    Hi, can you connect to it by ip address?  Also try access it by FQDN.  Make sure services are started.

    This happens at times especially after updates for some reason.  The only fixes I have found require being at the server physically and restarting the rpc service if you can log in, otherwise restart or force power off the server with crossed fingers.
