Terminal Server 2008 x86 RDP log on "access Denied" just before desktop load.
Posted on 2014-11-17
Server has been running for years with different admins, I recently recreated the domain and rejoined the server to the new domain. This happen 2 month ago. Just last week, the terminal server allows the users to log in all the way up to the desktop and "Access Denied". If I log on at the console, the RDP will most of the time take over the session. other time the "Access Denied". This seems to be a Domain user issue, When I log in as the local admin via RDP all seems fine.
Has 2 Nics
1 with gateway and TCP IP V4 only - No netbios or DNS registration (external RDP connector)
2 with outgateway and standard MS network config (internal RDP Connector & Domain connection)
-DNS register only on Nic 2
-rDNS registered for both IP address as the same server name matching forward DNS
steps so far
-Double check all nic config and DNS resolve the \\domain.local
-Disabled IP offload on the NICs
-Ran Fix it on Kerbose to us TCP
My work around
-Extended discount time to 16hrs
-Log each user in tot he Terminal server before the come in to works
