rds question

Gad SAADIA used Ask the Experts™
WHen I try to MSTSC to server1 (Windows 2008 R2, DC) for regular administration purpose a receive a message telling me that

"Remote desktop services are now buzy. Try connecting later..."

Is there a way to solve this problem without rebooting the server1?

I though closing the WIndows session on server1 but how do I close the Windows session from another PC (on the same LAN)?

Or any other solution ?

Thank you

In Remote Desktop Services Manager, in the left pane, click the Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server on which the user session is running.  Then log out that user.

That will release a user session for you to use.

In this scenario, some remote desktop sessions do not completely exit on the computer. You find that there is one Csrss.exe process left in these sessions. Additionally, after some time, you cannot establish new remote desktop sessions to the computer.
