Hello Linda,

in my RDP client I can see the Welcome screen  with the clircle spinning 
forever. Unfortunately when the client screen was locked before I try to 
connect it is afterwards not possible to unlock the desktop anymore and 
I have to hard reboot the machine

RDP is enabled and users have been added.

I can however RDP to a machine using a local account without a problem.

I will check the logs again tomorrow.


best regards
