  • Hi,

    Your error says: Error connecting to existing session for <username> (Id 0)
    Sounds like this user is already logged in, perhaps something is going on with that session. 
    Can you reboot the server?
    Can you log on with another admin account?

    There is a similar thread and see if it can help you.

  • as suggested by Jeff, looks like user is already logged in via console session. Try mstsc /console or mstsc /admin while connecting rdp session, if user is logged in, you may disconnect the session to log on.
