Hello All,

We have a jump server of windows 2012r2 on which terminal server is installed and when am trying to mstsc that server it is not working however with mstsc /admin switch it is working fine.

Below are the steps i have taken but no luck.

  1. Checked remote desktop services and remote desktop licensing service it was in running state, not only this all the services are in runing state but tried restarting this both services.
  2. Checked remote desktop licensing and diagnoser evrything looks good with userbased cal which is having 150 license out of which 80 is issued and 70 is available.
  3. Terminal server group in AD contain this computer object added yes it was validated
    4.builtin object in AD called terminal server licensing group is also having this computer object added.
  4. Atlast i did rebooted the server and it started working fine.

But again same issue came yesterday last week some other application server who is having terminal server installed was also facing same issue but after reboot it fixed the issue

I believe there is concrete solution for the same and am missing exact cause behind it. Please help and advise the next course of action to get it be fixed.
