I have a 2008 Server Core that I am trying to RDP to. I used to be able to RDP, now I am getting the following error message:
You are connected to the remote computer. However, an error occurred while an initial user program was starting, so you are being logged off. Contact the system administrator for assistance.
I have also tried to VNC. I have looked at different topics on this issue. One of the suggestions was to go to a specific registry key, which I was able to, but that didn’t fix the issue. The registry key was:
hklmsoftwaremicrosoftwindows NTCurrentVersionImage File Execution Options
I was able to select Permission and I made sure that System has full control permission. User group has Read permission.
This ties into another issue I have is with my 2008 Server clock shows 8 minutes fast. This is a VM which holds the FSMO roles that the time is 8 minutes fast.
1) I need to be able to log into the 2008 Core – This is a physical box.
2) I need to fix the time on the 2008 Server – This is a VM
