Have a 2008srv that is running but not accessible from the console or RDP. It only shows a black screen after login. This is physical server (no VM guest), and we really do not want to forcibly shut it down. There is a db process that *must* be closed gracefully.
Found several similar posts, but none of the solutions have worked thus far.
CTRL - ALT - DEL and CTRL - ALT - END will act like they are bringing something up, but then just go back to black.
I can remotely access the services, and have tried restarted Terminal Services and a few other related ones, but the problem persists.
Already tried all the workaround shown here - http://www.grishbi.com/2015/01/rdp-black-screen/
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
