Remote logins are currently disabled.

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Our monitoring systems reported errors with a terminal server. I tried remote desktop and received the following error:

Remote logins are currently disabled.

Someone with administrator access disabled the logins with the change logon command.

The management console for reasons not pertinent to this issue was not usable at this time. In order to enable the logins, I needed to a way to submit the command.

Time for our trusty friend “psexec”

psexec.exe “\\<terminal server>\ change logon /enable”

After that we could access the terminal server.
