RD Connection Broker Failing

Posted on 2014-08-16

So on a new SBS2011 migration, I have woken up to a stopped RD Connection broker service. When I try to start it, it immediately stops and generates the event (ID: 898):

RD Connection Broker service failed to start. HRESULT = 0x88130013.

Open in new window

Any ideas will be great!

Also I have figured it out that an update may be causing it. (KB2546250) I tried to talk to Microsoft and they wanted £400 before even looking at it. The update will not uninstall and the KB article says once installed it cannot be removed. Any ideas here?

    Remove the Connection broker role, reboot and then reinstall the role

    I am not in an immediate position to fire up my lab VM, but I don't recall RDCB being a default role on SBS. And, in fact, because of how RWA works. Installing other RD roles breaks things.

    You god! I compared with another SBS 2011 install and removed the appropriate role services. Now working perfectly. Thanks so much!!!!
