    1.Which is the version of RDC running in the server 2003? I am wondering if this is problem related to the compatibility between windows operating systems.

    2.Please try to uncheck NLA in windows 10 under remote settings. And kind check event logs in both client and server for following path:
    Event log checking:

    TerminalServices-RemoteConnectionManager and TerminalServices-LocalSessionManager logs to view information about connections.

    Step 1: Press Windows+R to open the Run dialog, enter eventvwr (or eventvwr.msc) and hit OK.

    Step 2: Navigate to Event Viewer\ Applications and Services Logs\ Microsoft\ Windows\ TerminalServices-*
