  • Hi,

     

    Have you found anything wrong in the Userenv.log file?

     

    In most of cases, this issue could be caused by SMS on the server. This issue may be temporarily alleviated by the follows:

     

    1) Stopping any service starting with "SMS" on the server.

    OR

    2) Logging on at the server console.

     

    Hence, please install hotfix 831962 on the SMS server and set it up to be deployed to all workstations that will be accessing the server.

     

    A remote desktop session may experience a long delay when you try to log off an Advanced Client computer

    Meanwhile, please refer to the following article describes the similar issue on the Windows Server 2003.

     

    It takes longer than you expect to log off from a Terminal Services session in Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003

    Thanks.

  • Hi Alan,

    I have latest service pack (SP2) installed in the server and no SMS clients installed in the server. Do you have any idea other than these solutions ?

     

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

    Are you running ePO / McAfee..? I've seen this before with a corrupted install of McAfee Agent 4.5+ and 8.7 - Typically on 64-bit hosts.
    Try uninstalling and reinstalling McAfee and its associated agents.

    Of course, if you're not running McAfee, this won't be your problem :)

    Regards,

    Damien
