I have a 2008 EE x64 server that I am having trouble RDPing to.
The error in the event log of the server is:
1048 Terminal Services - Local Session Manager
Terminal Services failed. The Relevant status code was No such interface supported.
The Windows firewall is turned off. NETSTAT -AN shows that the server is not even listening on port 3389.
I checked the local policy and Allow logon through terminal services had the Administrators and Remote Desktop Users. The Logon as service policy item has Network Service included. Note: This is not a term server, just trying to use RDP
The Terminal Services service is set to Auto, it is started, and set to run under Network Services.
Now, I HAVE found a fix for it......but I don't like it. If I add NT AUTHORITY\Network Service to the admin group and reboot, everything works perfectly. The port is listed as listening and I am able to connect remotely.
So this tells me I have a permissions issue somewhere. The question is where. I checked under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\SvcHost but the permissions look like my other 2k8 boxes.
Anyone out there have in depth knowledge of how RDP works with the OS to try and determine where the access is being denied?
