RDS 2008 R2 stop working but keep connexion actives
Posted on 2014-01-24
first of all, forgive my english i'm from Belgium,
here is my problem :
whe have a new client that had already his networks configurated by another society.
In the infrastrucutre there is a active directory server with roles file server and print server and another server RDS. The users in the office and outside the office connect on the RDS to work.
Sometimes, the RDS refuse new connections, the rdp can contact the server, i type my credentials, the connections is in configuration but it's look like a time out and can't connect.
with this happen, there is no error in the event viewer, no informations and the service is still workng.
The users who are connected can still working normally.
The error i can see in the RDS appear to be some error with the printer drivers and the printer redirection, there are 20 printers on the printserver, every user had 3 to 7 printer connected, and for the users who work at home they have they're own printer.
2 days ago i saw there was a GPO that desactivated the "EasyPrint", so i removed this GPO and the problem seem solved, there is no time out again since this modification, but the users can't print since...
i'm thinking of moving the printserver on the RDS and desactivate again the "EasyPrint", maye be a issue to solve the problem, can someone tell me if it's a good idea or have a solution to solve the problem.
