AVD Session hosts becoming unavailable at random

Harm Oosthoek 30 Reputation points

We have the same issue as described in the following article:


  • Users get kicked out of their session and cannot reconnect.
    • The user sessions are still marked as Active/Disconnected according to the Azure portal.
  • We cannot RDP to the session host through the internal network.

After we shutdown and reboot the session host, everything will work fine again.


We noticed the following notable things:

  1. There are no event logs generated at all, starting 30-60 min prior to the 'crash'.
  2. Event Viewer is getting spammed by the following warning:
    1. Microsoft.RDInfra.RDAgent.Service.AgentUpdateStateImpl
        1. Unexpected last recorded state

I have yet to find anything on this problem. Is anyone else experiencing this with their AVD environments?

    Are you still having the same issue? We've seen similar issues - UNC, Ping, remote MMC works fine. Can't RDP on the internal network and all users lose access until the host is rebooted. Event logs stop getting generated too.

    We've got a ticket open with Microsoft Support but getting nowhere.
