    "Access Denied" through RDP

    Anyone seen this before ? Fresh install, only windows updates applied, no domain, nothing in the eventlog .. happened to me now on Server 2008 R1 SP2 and R2 ...

    I agree. If its a brand new build reinstall, patch, and try again.

    Cheers for keeping us updated,
    One server in question was never in a domain and has been reinstalled since but I will certainly keep this in mind.

    The first server I saw was indeed a domain server, but was als reinstalled (or in that case reverted to a snapshot).

    But it does indeed sound like a promising solution

    I have a 2008 R2 server that had this problem - i.e. Immediate "access denied" using RDP.

    This server had been moved between domains and some of the services including

    Remote Desktop Services

    &

    Distributed Transaction Coordinator (this seemed to slow the logon)

    had has their logon accounts reset from "Network Service" to "Local System". I reset the RDS service to "Network Service" (just put any valid password into the box) and its all working again.

    No idea why these changed - just happy to have fixed the problem

    Cheers

    Anything in the Event Logs? That is definitely a weird one... I have to agree with Ossian. If nothing's in the logs and Google searches are largely coming up short, I say rebuild it.

    This is a fresh install basically with no other user apart from "Administrator" .. so fresh install, enable Remote Desktop and go ..

    It seems to work for a while but once / twice a day, out of the blue, it popps up with that error where you have to reboot the server in order to get back in.

    Most google hits referring to server in the domain, but this isn't in a domain as it is a fresh server ...
