    Remote Desktop Timeout


    Hello,


    I'm facing an issue with one of my Remote Desktop machines. I have 2 running in my environment in which I thought were identically configured. I have noticed that with one server if a user is idle for 10 minutes the session will lock and present and screen saver. ( expected behavior). On my other machine, it takes a few hours of idle time before it presents the user with a locked screen. I logged into both machines and let them sit to simulate idle time. I then logged into another machine and ran quser /server: </servername>. I noticed that the timer for the working server started to calculate the idle time while the other did not. Has anyone experienced this behavior before?


    Things I have tried.

    • Reboot (a time tested troubleshooting step)
    • Patching
    • sfc /scannow.
    • Verify group policy settings
    • Compared local registry settings with the working RDS server.

    I'm running Server 2016 Datacenter.

    :)

  2. remote desktop

    Hello,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Please help me with the below details to understand your issue in a better way:



    1. Are you using the Microsoft remote desktop app?


    If you are using the Microsoft remote desktop app downloaded from
    Microsoft store then, I suggest you to follow the steps to
    fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store
    .



    If the issue still persists with the Microsoft remote desktop app, then you can contact the support team by going to the

    link
    and scrolling down to the bottom and clicking on
    Microsoft remote desktop support under the Publisher info.



    However, if you are using the Remote desktop connection, which comes pre-installed with Windows 10, then I suggest you to please post your question in the
    TechNet forum.



    Hope it helps.
