Hi, we have a Terminal Server running on Win2008 R2 server.  Our remote desktop users uses their Outlook 2010 to check their e-mails and also receive voicemail on your e-mails.  Now and then, sound stopped working.  To get sound to work, I have to restart the Windows audio service.  Then the users must logout and login in order to have sound.
This Terminal server is a Hyper-V virtual server with 12GB of RAM.

What could be the problem?

It seems like we ran out of hard drive space and RAM was running really high at 11GB out of 12GB of ram.

Well you need to restart terminal servers often. That is the only solution.

No answer from anyone else and it seems the resources were taken up. Hence, the audio service hung up.
