Archived from groups: microsoft>public>windows>terminal_services (more info?)

I have a number of 2003 Servers. One server returns a message:
"Remote Desktop Disconnected
The Client could not connect to the remote computer"
>
I have run netstat -a -o on the failing server and found that the RDP-TCP
port 3389 is not listed as a listening port.
Terminal Services is started in services
The server is part of a workgroup and does not receive domain policies.
The other partners in the same workgroup are aon the same subnet - Remote
Control works properly on the partners.
The Server has SP1 installed.
Remote Desktop is enabled in the Remote tab of System Properties.
Disabling and then Enabling Remote Desktop does not start teh RDP-TCP
Listener.

In Terminal Services Manager I see the Comupter with Console linked to it
but RPC-TCP Listener is not there. All symbols are green. Disconnecting and
reconnecting the computer does not restore the RDP-TCP listener.
The DRP-TCP port is correctly defined in the Registry.
There are no events in the event log that relate to the RDP-TCP listener or
Terminal Services.

As far as I can see all the servers are configured the same.
The server where Remote Desktop does work is our SQL Server and is not an
easy
machine to reboot with sever impact to the user community.

Besides rebooting (which I personally do not consider a fix for anything)
what else can be done to get the RDP-TCP Listener running again. This machine
did work properly up until about two or three weeks ago. As far as I can tell
no one has made any changes to the server at that time. It was last rebooted
on a weekend 1 1/2 weeks ago.

Hello,

Same thing happened to me once, with no reason server stopped accepting
sessions.
Go to the terminal services configuration, delete tcp-rdp listener and then
restart server. After booting go again to the TSconf and create a new rdp
listener, restart server once again and that's it. This happened to me once,
and it helped me.

Regards, Frane
