Hello,
I usually do an mstsc from a server to another. This time, the server I always use to terminal in does not to a windows 2012 server. The server does terminal in to other devices except a Windows 2012 server, recently updated. I can get to the Windows 2012 server from other servers, not just this particular one. I know it is NOT the server that I am running mstsc on. I can get to other PCS. It is the destination server, Windows 2012. Any thoughts would be appreciated. It has been working for almost a year now until the last set of update.

Well for starters I think we will need some more information
Do you get an error?
Can 1 ping the other?
What sort of account are you logging in with?
Have you done any troubleshooting? I mean like looking at groups etc..

Please clarify below information also.

1. Is it prompting for username and password ?

2. If Yes, Try logging using local ID, Computername\username

3. Have you tried rebooting the server ? If not try once.

4. Are you able to access remote services ?

5. On any member server,
   Start --> Run --> tsadmin --> Browse for non working system and reset the RDP and TCP connections.

6. Are you able to acess UNC Path for this server ?

7. Try disableing AV and Firewall on this server and check.

It is an issue/bug with Windows server 2012 and Windows sbs 2011. A reboot of the Windows 2012 server solves the issue.
