Remote Server unable to login

So I have a Windows 2003 server running as a domain controller and a Windows Server 2008 as a member server setup to act as a terminal server.

This has worked fine for a good few years but all of a sudden I cant login to the 2008 server remotely, it just says the username and password are incorrect. This happens for all the remote users.

Soon as I try to connect internally it works fine?

I have rebooted both servers along with the router but cant see why this would happen.

Any ideas would be great.

Thanks

I wonder if this is due to a recent Windows Update.

Here's a seemingly related post which just appeared: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/Windows_7/Q_28635660.html

Do you know if updates were recently installed?

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

No still haven't worked it out yet but it causing me a big problem.

Had your server done any updates at all?

I have reinstalled the server with 2008 and 2012 today, I do not have all updates installed.
I expect it is a problem between domain controller (server 2003) and remote desktop server (2012/2008)

Will give that ago but not sure that will be it as it's been working fine for a good few years until the end of last week.

The only thing that seems to have changed is automatic updates.

robinhornnz has isolated the updates: KB3002657 and KB3046049 and resolved it by removing them: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2012/Q_28636661.html#a40671657

Just for reference I had to remove these two updates from both my 2008 RDP server and my 2003 DC.

Thanks again.
