Remote Desktop stuck at "Initiating remote connection" stage

Postby guest » Tue Nov 27, 2012 11:46 am

I have a VM with RDP. the end point is created and working. Up until this morning, RDP was working fine. Suddenly it stopped, and now I get "Initiating remote connection".

I have rebooted the machine several times, with no success. I cannot get any way of getting RDP to work again.

I have deleted and re-added the end point and the VM is currently in the "running" status.

I've just followed the advice of all the others on this forum. Deleted the VM (which is scary, if you don't have a back up!)

It converts the VM in to a cloud service after it is deleted for some reason, so I deleted that too.

Then I recreated the VM from the disk image left behind, attached my secondary disk to it.

It's a bit slow, but it works.

Then, the final piece of the pie was to change the RDP endpoint to the same port I was using previously (Azure assigns a random one to the new VM).

Then finally, I could get back in to it. PHEW!

Installed TeamViewer immediately, so at least I've got some Remote capabilities should this happen again.

Shame. It shows such promise, but it's WAY off the mark in terms of reliability so far. I know it's a previous, but we don't have to pay for other previews. Why should we with this?
