Windows 2012 Remote Desktop just stopped working after a reboot
I have installed Remote Desktop on a DC for the moment but in next school holidays I will seperate them.
However with windows 2008 and 2003 this has been working like a sharm last 10 years so unless 2012 makes this senario worse i dont think that is the issue here
Installed the remote access tools
All we use is to connect to remote desktop like we have done all the way since 2003.
IT worked well for a week
I have not activated the lisesce but have 103 days left. I know when i activate the lisence server, i will get issue with older version of RDP on so thats why its not activated jet as I have no solution on this
THen yesterday I did a reboot due to some internet issue and now I can not connect to remote desktop,
It just says:
The Compunter can't connect to the remote computer
Try connecting aain, if the problem continues, contact the owner of remote computer or your network administrator.
I do not even get to the logon box
I have also right clicked "My Computer" --> Properties --> Advanced System ->Remote.
Remote Desktop option to allow or dont allow is greyed out,but its marked on "Allow"
I have taken away the tick of using "Network Level Authentication" as this causes the older client not to work
Thanks for your reply
ITs a totally new server so I have not added any antivirus or 3rd party firewall.
I can see there is a windows firewall but that I have disabled
I have kind of started from the start again
1. I have uninstalled all Remote Desktop roles and restarted
2. The greyout "remote desktop" under setting is now not grayed out. Deleted some register keyes
3. I have set it to allow to connect with remote desktop
Now i do some test. The server is called terminalsrv.magleby.dk and has IP 192.168.1.5
On the server i do the following 2 test
try to connect with remote desktop using IP. It says its not availabe
I then try to connect with terminalsrv.magleby.dk and then it works
I then repeate the test on a windows 7 PC on the network
Try to connect with IP.. Does not work
Try to connect with terminasrv.magleby.dk. Does not work
When it all worked i was able to connect with the IP without writing port numbers, so I guess that as soon as i get it to work with an IP again it will work
I am doing further test but only with Remote Desktop Management and not with the roles installed
Hope you have any idea
