Remote admin using Terminal Services

By dshuss ·
We were using Terminal Services to remotly access
our 2000 servers from a windows 98se client. All
was working well then one day we started geting
the message below:

"The client could not connect to the terminal server. The server may be toobusy. Please try connecting later."

Notes: 2000 pro client still connects fine.
Could not find any help on microsoft support site.
This accours whith out any other connections.
We are running in Native mode.
All servers have the latest Service packs/hot fixes.
Tried reinstalling serveral times.


Any ideas ...

Thanks,

Dan

Gabe,

Thanks for responding...

To answer your question, we are not passing
through a firewall to reach these servers. They
are all on the inside.

Thanks,

Dan

Win 98 client only gets a 90 day license while W2k have unlimited. U need to buy license for W98 users or upgrade them to W2K.

If the terminal server is set up in application mode its possible that the temporary TSCAL for the W98 machine has expired. If you're in administration mode then this shouldn't be a problem provided that you are logged in as an administrator. Look at the TS licensing administration tool to see where licences have been assigned/expired. The W2K client has a built in TSCAL which would explain why this one still has access.

I know you said that you had Win98 clients, but try looking at this XP fix. It all sounds just like your situation.
