We are in the process of running updates on our newly migrated to SBS 2011 server.
After the server came up from its post update install reboot every logon attempt came up with a “Remote Desktop Gateway service is not available” error.
We flipped over to the Intel Remote Management Module 3 KVM session to see what was going on (we always open a KVM session to watch the server’s reboot cycle) and found the SBS 2011 CTRL+ALT+DEL logon screen.
So, everything looked normal there.
After logging into the KVM session we tried to log on via RDP one more time and it worked.
A look into the Services MMC in the SBS Native Tools Console’s Computer node turned up the following:
- Remote Desktop Gateway: Started – Automatic (Delayed Start)
Ah, not to panic then. We just need to be a bit more patient as things come up after that boot cycle! :)
