RDP not working on Windows 2003 production server after Windows Update on 11th Jan 2013.

    Frage

  • Hi there,

    I have Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 Enterprise running on VM environment.

    After Microsoft Windows Update on 11th of Jan 2013, RDP has stopped working.

    After reviewing some of other ppl's recommendation, I have tried coping rdpwsx.dll file from working environment server which didn't work.

    As this server is production server, we are not able to easily restart the machine.

    However, whenever we try to RDP into the box, connection is not established with unknown reasons.

    Can someone please please please help :(

  • Hiya,

    1: What is the exact error message or action.

    2: What does the server event log state. (Use console to connect)

    3: Are there any services on the server, which are set to automatic, that are not starting.

  • Hi Jesper,

    Thanks for your reply.

    1: What is the exact error message or action.

     No error message is given other than following.

    " This computer can't connect to the remote computer.

    Try connecting again. If the problem continues, contact the owner of the remote computer or your network administrator."

    2. What does the server event log state.

    No error is logged in eventviewer.

    Port 3389 is listening and can see connection is established via 'query session' but nothing in reality.

    3. Are there any services on the server, which are set to automatic, that are not starting.

    No.

    Hope this information is enough for your kind help.

  • Hiya,

    from what O/S are you trying to connect?

    Is it the same from any another client?

  • Hi Jesper,

    Yes, it would be same from any another client.

    O/S is Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 Enterprise running on ESXi environment.

  • Hi Jesper,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Connection to this box has been tried from 5 different O/S.

    Fedora, Win7 Pro, Win 2008 R2 SP1, Win 2003 SP2 and locally from machine it self which none of them actually work.
