Event ID 1071 — Remote Desktop Session Host Connections
Published: January 8, 2010
Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2
Users can connect to an RD Session Host server to run programs, save files, and use network resources on that server. When a user disconnects from a session, all processes running in the session, including applications, will continue to run on the RD Session Host server.
The user logon mode on the RD Session Host server can be configured to prevent new user sessions from being created on the RD Session Host server. You might want to prevent new user sessions from being created on the RD Session Host server when you are planning to take the RD Session Host server offline for maintenance or to install new applications.

|Message:||A connection request was denied because the terminal server is currently configured to not accept connections. To configure the server to allow connections, use the chglogon command-line tool.|
Configure the RD Session Host server to allow connections
To resolve this issue, configure the RD Session Host server to allow connections by using the chglogon command-line tool.
To perform this procedure, you must have membership in the local Administrators group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.
To allow connections:
- On the RD Session Host server, open an elevated Command Prompt window. To open an elevated Command Prompt window, click Start, point to All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
- If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Yes.
- In the elevated Command Prompt window, type chglogon /enable, and then press ENTER.
To verify that connections to the RD Session Host server are working properly, establish a remote session with the RD Session Host server.
