RDP resolution issue between 8.1 to 2008 R2 terminal server

Q: RDP resolution issue between 8.1 to 2008 R2 terminal server

I have a client who RDPs into a 2008 R2 terminal server from a Windows 8.1 laptop with a 4K display. Everything is terribly small. I mean ridiculously small. I've just used the zoom function but some fonts are still ridiculously small with the zoom.
Is there a fix for this or am I SOL?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have a client with a Win2008 R2 Terminal Server.  Last week Thursday, one of the users got pop ups for ransomware.  My helpdesk didn't think too much of it; the tech ran MBAM and thought he had it cleaned out.  The next day, it was back and affecting additional user profiles. It got escalated to me.  I ran MBAR and HitmanPro, and thought I had rooted it all out.  Unfortunately, we discovered that this was the CryptoLocker trojan; that the user had originally opened an infected email message on 9/18, and that by the time he started getting the ransomware pop ups on 9/26, several network shares were already encrypted. 
We've got good backups so i can restore the data back prior to the encryption point, and am in the process of doing so.  I've also run a scan using MBAR and Combofix on every PC and laptop on their network that I can get my hands on - that caveat because our primary contact thinks he's above all this and won't allow us to have our agent software on his machine, and there's one other machine that he doesn't even know who is using it or where it is.  I think I've got all the PCs stable and can vouch for the fact that they are not the source of the encryption; it really did originate with this user on the terminal server.  
My problem is this: after all this work, and 5 days into it, I discovered a new EXE in the appdata folder of the user originally infected.  So obviously, I haven't rooted the thing... Read more

I have a very frustrating problem. I want to use Windows 2008 R2 Terminalserver with Outlook 2016. 
Unfortunately every time a user starts Outlook, he installs the 64 bit Components. It seems there is one solution: Installing Windows Search Role and starting Outlook in Installation Mode. 
Seems to work. With that solution, there is another problem: It is not possible to search in pst-files. Windows error log says event ID 3036. Looks like, Windows Search cannot index pst-files (in network). The possible solution to disable indexing for Outlook
does not work because the configuration change got reseted after relogin. This might happen because of our Roaming users. 
As you can see, I have one problem. When Windows Search is installed, pst-files are not searchable. When Windows Search is not installed, Outlook 64 bit Components get installed every start of Outlook. 

Is there anybody who has other ideas for a solution? 

Thank you for your help.

Hey all! Hope y'all well!

A collegue and I have successfully cloned and deployed a Server 2003 OS from one machine to another with completely different hardware! (With a little help from Elvandil)

The server boots and runs very well. It is being used as a terminal server and has Citrix installed. It is on the company domain which uses server 2003 sbs as the domain controller. All IP addresses on the T/Server are set the same as when the OS was on the original machine.

The old machine had a HP 10/100/1000 network card. The new machine has a Realtek 10/100/1000 NIC. The T/Server knew the HP NIC was installed, but not present. We removed the HP card from the registry.
From the SBS server we can ping the T/Server and browse it's drive on the network, however we cannot remote on to the T/Server via RDC or connect to it using Citrix clients installed on the domain workstations.

We think the network Pc's + SBS svr is still listening for connections from the HP NIC and therefore causing the remote issues.

Are we correct? If so, how can we resolve this issue??

I know there are some very experienced people here and would love to hear their views.

Thanks for taking the time to read! Any help will be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

I have installed Windows 2003 server with a terminal service on the test machine. When I remotely connect to the server using the Remote Desktop Client from XP pro, I have no sound. The RDP client is set to bring the sound to the local computer. When I get on the server, the SB Live sound card is properly installed using the certified Microsoft driver and I can hear the sound from the console. When I logon locally to the console, and go to the sound property in the control panel, I see Creative SB Live properly installed. When I logon from the client using the RDP, it says Microsoft RDP driver and it is set to mute. No matter, how many times, I tried to unmute, it always go back to being muted. When I hit the volume tab, and go down to the speaker settings, and click on advanced, it says “Direct sound settings not available.” From the console, I don’t get this error message. I have also reinstalled the Directx9c. I don’t know what else to do at this point. Any help is greatly appreciated. I also searched various forums using few search engines to see this is a common issue, I haven’t found a solution.

I have installed Windows Server 2008 on one of my hard drives. It works and feels awesome. However there is one issue that I cannot resolve.

I have two PC's in my home that share the same internet connection. When running XP Pro both computers are able to access the internet with no problems however when I switch to the Windows Server 2008 on the host computer the PC that is running XP Pro can not access the internet.

The problem is when I look at the NICs the one for the other PC says "Network Cable is Unplugged" but it's not. Like I stated before it works fine if I reboot and use Windows XP.

Is there some setting within server 2008 that I need to change to correct this? The NIC card in question is using NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller and the drivers that Windows server has assigned.

Someone with some knowledge please help

I am running Server 2008. I have issues with both a windows 7 machine and 2 xp machines. They do not map any drives but the users folder which is supposedly hidden. Even if I run the vbs scripts locally none of the drives are mapped. They are in different user groups and the scripts work perfectly on other computers. Even more odd which I browse the network - I can't seen any of the network shares even if I wanted to manually map the drives. I have disjoined and joined the domain with no luck. I have two 7 machines running the exact same configuration with no issue. Please help as it is limiting the users of these computers completely and I have tried everything.

The main suggestion I've received is to make sure Netbios over tcpip is enabled. Which it is.

Hi All,

I've recently rebuilt a server for our Reports Database, installed SQL Server R2 2008 and updated to SP2. Installed all the preqs. However when restoring our test database, it takes forever to restore, literally hours. Is there something I missed? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

many thanks in advance


A:Issue with SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2: Database restore

First, investigate the technique being used: A binary image restore of the files OR just a plain SQL REPLACE. The binary restore is not the default, so I am afraid you're into the slow route.
Make sure you are not doing record at a time and are using the batch mode

If there's 1000's of records, ditch the indices:

DELETE all secondary indicies from every table (keep the definitions obviously)
Then RESTORE - - the base tables will fill much faster.

When done, update the schemas to add back the indices, and you can then write
SQL recreate the index data from the base tables.
​Being the SQL-DBA is fun :sigh:

Hello all,

Your help is desired here.

I just built a fresh windows server 2008 64 bit OS. I need to install sql 2008 on it. When I try it immediately prompts an error saying microsoft .net 3.5 is not installed.

Problem is, is I did install .net 3.5 sp1.

Some things I have researched indicate that 3.5 needs to be enabled in 2008 server OS. When I go to do that, all that is listed under features is .net 3.0. So I enabled that, hoping that on a refresh it would see 3.5 but it does not.

Has anyone installed sql 2008 on a windows 2008 server and if so could you shed any light please?

Hi guys,

I am having a lot of trouble with constant BSOD's on my hp dv6500 laptop. This started 1 month ago and has been bugging me since then. I thought the BSOD's were because of windows vista (home premium) and then installed windows server 2008 on my laptop. The BSOD's continue.

I am attaching 2 different files which contain minidumps of all the BSOD's on vista SP1 and Server 2008.

One of the reason of switch was that i though HP's drivers for vista were buggy. I am using most drivers on Server 2008 from microsoft apart from the NVIDIA drivers from HP, realtek sound drivers and wifi drivers from HP.

The config of machine is :

Core 2 duo T7300 2 GHZ
2 GB hynix RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS 128MB
Microsoft USB Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 (IntelliPoint)
Motorola SM56 Data Fax Modem
Realtek RTL8101 Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)
Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN
Realtek High Definition Audio
Symantec Endpoint Protection Antivirus

I am posting in vista section because i think the issue is related to vista since the problem began there. I think problem persists in server 2008 because of common code with vista.

Please let me know if you need any more information

Please help.

I have just replaced an old XP box with our first Windows 8.1 Pro client. Joined the domain (Server 2008 R2, using active directory), seamed quite normal. When I rebooted, I received the normal windows logon screen, user name & password, entered those and logged in. The problem being, all resources on the network required me to enter network credentials. For example, try and double click on file server get following 'Windows Security' window:
Enter network credentials. Enter your credentials to connect to: SERVER.
The system cannot contact a domain controller to service the authentication request. Please try again later

I have: unjoined and rejoined client to domain; Checked active directory and the computer is correctly registered. Nothing is helping. Please help.

A:Network Credentials issue, win 8.1 client & Server 2008 AD

According to Paul Thurrott you need to add the credentials by going into the Windows vault per method #2 in the link below. If you don't add the credentials to the vault then Windows won't remember them despite checking the box to remember credentials.

He is using Windows server 08 and Homegroups with Windows 8 and he shows both methods to access network shares on the server.

By the way I know this is solved, hoping you can come back to confirm this.

We're using Windows 2000 Server in Terminal Server/Application Server mode. the Clients are Win98 boxes.

I'm looking at setting up windows 2003 terminal servers all over the place to replace the awful thing people are currently doing here - vncing servers with one small shared password among everyone <holding my hands over my ears for the backlash>. Don't blame me, it's another awful legacy I have to get rid of...

1. I've got to set up a Terminal Server Licensing server and was thinking about putting this on my second domain controller. I was wondering what would happen in this server dies, though. Is there some way of having resilience in this scenario? Perhaps a second Licensing server or something, the way you have 2 or more Domain Controllers?

2. Also, I know that Windows XP has an RDP client, I've used before on many occasions, but what about all the Windows 2000 clients that I still have out there. What should I do for them to access the new Terminal Servers?

A:Terminal Server license server(s)? RDP client for Windows2K?

I'm not 100% sure on #1, but I believe that the TS licensing becomes integrated into the AD, so if one DC goes down, the other one will be able to check licensing. On another note, if you are using the TS for administration only, I don't believe you needs the TS Licensing to be installed.

For #2, you can download the latest version of the RDP client from MS's website. It should also be available through Windows Updates, although I think Win2K isn't supported any longer, other than Critical Updates.

In the DISA Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGS) there is a test for event tracing (#V31026). 
The STIG indicates that if you are running Win 2008 the absence of etwenable = false is not a 'finding' because event tracing is enabled by default (on 2008 servers) and it should be enabled and running.
Is this the same for windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Server?
I cannot find the element etwenable in my 2008 R2 Enterprise server test system, it does not exist.
Does that mean the requirement for the STIG is met, and event tracing IS enabled by default on Win 2008 R2 Enterprise Servers?  No further action is required to enable? 

Is there an easy way to verify it actually is enabled?  Check registry value, run script?

Excerpt from the STIG:
Microsoft Dot Net Framework 4.0 STIG
Rule Title:  Event tracing for Windows (ETW) for Common Language Runtime events must be enabled.
STIG ID: APPNET0067  Rule ID: SV-41075r1_rule 
Vuln ID: V-31026
Severity: CAT II Class: Unclass
Beginning with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, ETW Tracing is enabled by default and the "etwEnable" setting is not required in order for Event Tracing to be enabled. 
An etwEnable setting of "true" IS required in earlier versions of Windows as ETW is disabled by default.

I purchased 2 new Dell OptiPlex 3010 desktop computers that came with Windows 7 Professional operating system with SP1. There were no Microsoft updates installed yet. After I added one of these Dell computers to the Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, I was not able to download several items. Below are several examples:

1) I downloaded the Norton anti-virus installation file. This file is not the full installation of Norton; it is more of a file where you execute it and it will download the full installation from the Internet like from their Norton web site. So when I executed this installation file, it does not download the full installation files. It just hung at the screen saying “Downloading” and it will finally stop with an error (don’t remember the error message).

Note: If I have the full Norton installation file then I am able to install it on this computer with no problems.

2) I downloaded the Adobe Reader installation file. This file is not the full installation of Adobe Reader; it is more of a file where you execute it and it will download the full installation from the Internet like from their Adobe web site. So when I executed this installation file, it hung at the downloading part and then it will error out with a “Actionlist Not Found” message.

I am desperate to resolve this issue, as I have been getting this 0x800ccc0e error from Outlook on my laptop, regarding failure to connect to my virtual server (apache tomcat running windows server 2008)

I tried to connect to my email via Webmail on Plesk, and received a failed login. The same for all accounts.

The problem arose when just minutes after sending through an email okay, I tried a follow up email to the same person and received this 0x800ccc0e error message.

I check on the server and noted that Mailenable Professional was not running IMAP properly, as I have exceed my trial period, so I spoke to them and installed Mailenable Enterprise on over the top to keep the trial running.

It kept the same settings, and IMAP and all the other services on the same accounts worked.

Having gone back to Outlook on my laptop, and tried to send. I got the same error.

Since then, I have disabled all anti-virus (KASPERSKY PURE / SPY WARE DOCTOR / MALWARE) on my laptop and server (SYMANTEC END POINT), disabling the firewalls to no avail.

I tried setting up an account with POP as opposed to IMAP, and test fails in Outlook. I have also verified the account details to be the same, as had worked previously for a long time.

I've tinkered with some port changes via other forums, and its not worked either. Plus did a run of registry cleaners on both systems, as well as resetting machines etc.

A:Server (WINDOWS 2008) Mail Issue (MAIL ENABLE)

This has now been resolved, by the kind folk at mailenable.

Here are details of the fix, from the email they sent me:-
Ok we have logged into the server and performed a telnet test locally on the
server to see if we were able to connect to the MailEnable POP, IMAP and
SMTP services which were unsuccessful. We could see that you are running
Symantec Endpoint protection which is includes a firewall option. We added
the MailEnable IMAP service to the firewall rules which allowed us to
successfully connect the IMAP service. You can now use the Horde webmail
interface and log in using the IMAP protocol.

We then tried adding the SMTP service to the Symantec Endpoint Protection
firewall rules, however this did not make any difference. So we then
accessed the MailEnable SMTP properties and enabled the alternate port for
the SMTP service to listen on (587). We were then able to telnet to the SMTP
service on port 587 which indicates that there is some other
application/firewall that is blocking access on port 25. I noticed that the
Windows firewall was also running so we added a rule to the firewall for the
SMTP service and can now successfully connect to the service and send using
the Horde webmail interface. I'm quite certain that your Outlook errors
should be addressed so give it go and see if you can send/receive from the
Outlook client.

Cheers, and I hope this helps anyone who has a similar situation.

Hi all hope someone has an idea because I am clueless.
helping out a Real estate office, they have Windows 2000 server which shares files and has a few apps, and runs terminal server for about 25 on and off users. The server is bogging a bit at the terminal database program, so i figured adding a second 2000 server to ease the terminal services load made sense. Also thought why not make it a bdc as well, good backup, but use the bdc for terminal services, double duty. My 30 or so accounts with settings already created so makes sense.

I installed the second machine, added it and promoted it to 'seconday server'. Within 10 minutes my users are populated from the pdc in user manager, beautiful. Except I can't log in to the bdc at all with anything but 'administrator". Whether through terminal services, or right at the console, any account other that administrator fails. "The system could not log you on, be sure username and password are correct" etc.

Am I missing something? Can I do what I'm trying to do?

Any help or clues would be appreciated!

Thanks all

Hi all,
My task is to allow my accountant access to my MYOB files. He tells me his clients usually do it through Windows Terminal Services (which I guess is the Terminal Server software). A few questions to start: How do I find out if its been installed; how do I enable it? and how do I get into the configuration of it? I'm new to this one but Ive got Logmein and XPUnlimited to work in the (distant) past ....
The other totally newbie question I have is .... Once its setup, what does the person that wants to connect to my machine do to connect?

A:XP and Terminal Server

XP does not have Terminal Services; TS is available on Windows Server versions only. Instead, XP has a part of it called Remote Desktop. Certain versions of XP can act as a Remote Desktop server.

What are MYOB files, and what type of access does he need? (Meaning, what is he doing with them?)

BTW, which version of XP do you have?

Think I probably know the answer to this, but worth a shot.

I've got a bit of software that I've loaded onto our server and would like to be able to be accessed by people logging in.

When I run the application, it comes up saying that it can't be run on Windows Terminal Server.

Is there any options that I can adjust to enable this or will it simply not run?

A:Terminal Server

Probably not.... it usually helps to mention the software name though.

If it expressly says it won't run on terminal server then I highly doubt it will.

You have to much user mode application craches (information from MSINFO32.nfo). And in 2 dmp files we have:
CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION (f4) Probably caused by : csrss.exe EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005
CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION (f4) Probably caused by : csrss.exe EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005
It can be system files corrupted (try sfc /scannow ) or problems with security patches.

Do you mean the Terminal Services Client? You need a W2K server running Terminal services to connect to. the client is on the w2k server disk. Install that and configure to the server.

I am trying to get Office XP Pro to work using terminal services. The problem is when my users log in and try to access an office application they get an error:

"Only Administrators have permissions to add, remove, or configure server software during a terminal services remote session. If you want to install software on the server, contact your administrator."

I also get two errors in my event log. I have attached screen shots of the errors. The only thing I know for sure is that it is some sort of permissions issue. If I add the users in question to the local admin group on the server the errors stop.

I have been online and researched this until my eyeballs have fallen out but have had no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi guys,

We have recently upgraded all of our clients machines from XP to Win7 pro. and left all our servers on Win2003 st. edition. While on XP, users were able to connect and print on our terminal server which is running Win2003 but we have been having problems after the clients were upgraded to win7. User's printers are not being redirected now. Im not too sure if this is windows7 with win2003 issue or just HP drivers issue because all the printers are HP. I did try and find most of the HP win7 drivers to isolate the problem and I even downloaded HP univ. drivers but still the printer were not being redirected. What could be the issue here, I'm really confused.

Please help. Thanks
