Session Directory error event id 1003



Hi Everyone,

I have a terminal server farm setup using NLB and session directory. On the
second terminal server I am receivng the error below in the event log almost
every minute or so. Both servers are in the session direcory group on the
server that is hosting the session directory and in term services client
config, session directory is enabled. I can connect to either server so
there doesnt seem to be any network problems. Any ideas?

Event ID: 1003
Date: 08/12/2004
Time: 9:43:30 AM
User: N/A

Check your DNS records for the session directory server.
Or use the servers IP address.

event log errors relating to the Session Directory are:
* 1001 "The RPC call to join Session Directory to <SD SERVER NAME>

not available."
* 1003 "Session Directory server name <SD SERVER NAME> is
