Hi
Some of my servers suddenly started refusing RD connections saying
An authentication error has occured (Code: 0x80004005).
I'm mostly 2008 R2
What the heck ?

Please check the Event Viewer in the RDS servers, whether any specify error log exists. If you have installed some the third party software or antivirus software, this may led to this issue.



 Please also refer to the following thread.

That article is related to some Terminal Services problems, can you please point me at the exact sentence / link which relates to my problem ? (simply not being able to connect to a server using RD) ?

The error seems to be very specific--is everyone getting this error or is it only certain users or is it only from certain systems? How are you connecting--local LAN, VPN, ????

It seems to be only machine specific as no one else reported a problem. Few days later it fixed itself magically on my client PC too. In this case I can't really investigate it further.
Thanks anyway.
