I have a server running 2008 standard and for some reason now I cant use RDP to connecto it any longer. Also when I get onto the server, I see a red x on the network connection in the task bar and when I click on it it says Connection Status Unkown, Server Exexcution Failed.
Anyone have any idea what I need to do to resolve this...

If you have rebooted the server then next would be to replace / test the cable from the server to switch, if it is good try another port on the switch.
