Vista SP1 RC1 - Connect to Console via RDP does not work anymore


H

Herbert Storpe

If I use Remote Desktop or Remote Desktops MMC and check "Connect to Console"
all my sessions will be connected as standard remote desktop session to my
Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server Server 2008 RC.

Same if I try to connect using "mstsc /console". I'm not able to make a
remote console session anymore like it was possible with Vista RTM / Windows
XP before.

Is this a know bug? Does anybody has a work around for this?

Thanks, Herbert

You should be posting this on the beta forum for Vista Service Pack 1.
SP1 is still in beta even though you are using a Release Candidate.
There should be information on the site where you got SP1 as to how to
report, discuss bugs.

I'm using the public available RC1 version which I downloaded from MSDN.
Where should I go to report/discuss this bug?

I can not find a place to go inside the MSDN portal. So I think this is the
right place to talk about things like that.

Can anybody confirm having the same issue? Any hints?

I found out: Using the new syntax "mstsc /admin" works for "Remote Desktop"
console session.

"Remote DesktopS" MMC and checking "Connect to Console" does not work with
Windows Vista SP1 RC1.

If I use the MMC from W2K8RC1 on a W2K8 Server it works.

Seems to be a bug in Vista RC1. Please let me know if anymody has a
workaround for this problem in Vista RC1.

Thanks a lot, Herbert

I digged into this issue seeing that the "Remote Desktops" MMC on my Vista
system comes from Windows Server 2003 SP2 Admin Tools.

So for everybody who updates his Vista machine to SP1 RC1 should know that
based on the new RDP 6.1 client which comes with SP1 --> Remote Desktops MMC
"Connect to Console" using W2K3 admin tools will not work anymore.

Thanks for your time, Herbert

That Seems To Be The Main Problem With The MSDN And Microsoft Tech Net
Releases Of Windows Vista Service Pack One, Release Candidate 1, Us MSDN And
Tech Net Plus Subscriber's Have No Place To Go To Discuss Any Issues That
Occur With This New Release, And According To What Peter Foldes Told Me The
Following: We Must Obey The Beta Tester NDA Until The Beta Becomes Publicly
Available, Just FYI.

shadow 0 or having to login 2x... thanks for figuring that out, I thought I
was going crazy!
