RDP Print Spooler issue

By danzmanz ·

I am having a bizarre issue, when my server reboots we are not able to RDP to it. You get the standard message as if the server is down, am able to VNC to it though. All the necessary services are running. I find the only way to be able to RDP to it is when I restart the print spooler service which started automatically anyway. I can see how print spooler is related to RDP as the RPC service is dependent on it and terminal services service is dependent on RPC service. But they all appear to have started when the server boots up. The last thing I did printer related was install a driver 2 days before it started happening but I have removed it and still have the issue.

I am running a W2K3 x86 server.

any suggestions would be appreciated.
