Gday peoples, i have a really weird issue which i have tried to resolve my self a few times but to no avail.

I have a Win2008R2 server sitting on a ESXi 4.1, now the issue is when i reboot the server i have to perform a local login through ESXi colsole before anyone can RDP into the server. As soon as you press Login, the RDP allows conenctions.

 

I have tried changing GPO RDP Session/security, i have also reset the computer account on the domain.

Im starting to run out of ideas as to why this is starting all of a sudden, i also tried removing/re-installing vmtools thinking it might be causing an issue but nothing has worked yet. Its a production server used for remote apps so it cant be tinkered with during the day unless someone has a simple solution.

 

All serverices are running properly before the login is performed (Using services.msc/Connect to Server option) to check and make sure.

Off the top of my Head I have no Clue, I am very new to virtualization and vmware. I can point you to a few people who might be able to help. Spiceworks.com. I have an account there and I am sure someone from Vmware can help you out. Click on Join Free Community and after regisitering browse over to Virualization and post your question.

yeh i am sure it isnt related to VMWare, it has been workign fine for years mate but this oen has me stumped and normally i can fix most issues lol. The only thing i can think os is it is session related, or authentication related so whena  user actually logs on locally, it is triggering something for the RDP sessions to start working.

Anyway, ill try a few other things through GPO to see if i can set somethign manually (I have already added the RDP group members to the machine/server).

Cheers

Hi,

A workarround that worked for me with a similar issue i had..

Try to install the terminal services role, see if it's solving the issue and then remove the role.

Yeh well it actually has that role and is our main terminal server hosting all our remote apps, so that wont be the fix.

 

Anyway, it is not a big issue just an annoyance.

Not sure it could be role specific bug. However, it also sounds like a service or service dependency is kicking on when you logon as administrator. Maybe you can change the service to automatic and system/logon? Just a thought.

I forgot about this thread, what i did in the end was re-install vmware tools and that corrected the issue.
