    Is there any Know issues with the Windows 7 version of RDP. I was connected to a windows 2003 and logged off the server by typing logoff in run.

    I was logged off but the server then proceeded to restart.

    Any one see this issue before?

    Actually I was looking for a way to restart the server from RDP - maybe you've just answered the question for me.:razz:

    Why did you type logoff via RUN. Surely just logoff via the Menu (or even just disconnect your RDP session of you don't want to logoff - for example you might have some jobs running but don't want to stay remotely connected.).

    Actually I didn't even know you could type LOGOFF from the run command . -- We learn something every day. :razz:

    Cheers

    Hi Jimbo let me answer your question above. The resason the i logged of the server via the run command is a precuation against the mistake of hitting the restart or shutdown instead. I'm people remember doing that it some stage.

    Also the reason the i logoff instaed of disconnecting is that on occasion a disconnected session can get its self in a muddle and prevent you from connecting again. You would have to kill the session via TS admin.


    You can restart a server in a RDP session be using the shutdown -r command in run or cmd. You can restart a server remotly by using this command SHUTDOWN -r /m \\Computer
