Port 3389 Not Listening

March 17, 2010 Leave a comment

After upgrading one of our Windows Server 2003 Terminal Servers to SP2 (I know it’s been out forever.) we could not connect to an RDP session. The Terminal Services service was running but if I did a netstat -nao there was nothing listening on port 3389. 5 reboots didn’t seem to fix it. I tried all kinds of registry & file comparisons with a working Terminal Server, running Process Monitor during boot but nothing seemed to point me in the right direction. After about 3 hours I decided I would try re-installing SP2. After the reboot everything seemed to be working properly again. Weird.
