Windows server 2008

Hi,

I have Windows server 2008 R2 SP1.

When I make a remote session to it and try to go to computer, network or control panel, I get an error:

Remote procedure call failed and did not execute.

But from the server console everything is fine.

How do I fix this?

Thanks,

Roger 38.

Are you using Remote Desktop RDP?

IS this a local server and a local computer doing RDP?

What account are you using to remote login with? Check permissions

Yes, Remote Desktop RDP.
Its a local computer doing RDP.
I am using Domain Administrator account.

I tried two different desktops, its the same result.

Thanks,

Are the user accounts you are trying a member of the local group on the server "Remote Desktop Users"

Members in this group are granted the right to logon remotely

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

It was all working fine last week.

Suddenly it happened without changing anything.

Very strange.

Have you tried restarting the server?

Any updates applied recently?

I would delete the firewall rules and recreate a new rule for port 3389, I've seen this happen and not sure why it happens. I think it happens during an update.

For testing purposes turn off the firewall you'll know real quick.

No updates applied.

I cannot re-start the sever as it is in production.

Thanks.

PS. I can re-start it only on the weekend but will keep it as a last resort.
