  • Unable To Logoff Admin Account

    Hello folks,

    W2K03 server DNS and DHCP. and is the PDC. I am unable to log off domain admin console and remotely. MS suggests that it might be accounts that have not released memory (aka services). I have rebooted the server box and still the same issue. Also, remote admin already established is not bumped when another remote admin session is established. Logs really don't show anything related to this issue. Can someone give me some insights please?

    Thanks...DOH!

    Done any updates recently? I have heard of a few cases where admins were doing updates by remote saying reboot was needed. Admin pressed OK and it cut off the RDP Session or appeared to, but actually need the admin to go to the physical server,login and reboot.
    TIA

      Hello teiger,

      No recent updates have been performed. But it does give me a direction for investigation. As it stands, reboot kills all sessions but once i logon to the console as admin afterwards, I cannot log off from the session. Additionally, a box used for remote logon, once logged in as admin, will not log off.

        You should check out your GPOs for a logoff script. - use RSOP.msc

        Just as a test: create a new account, add it to the Domain Admins group, logon to the DC, and then try to logoff.
