ESX 4 – Windows 7 VM cannot connect via RDP
Today I noticed when rebooting my Windows 7 VM under ESX 4 remote desktop would not allow connections until I logged on locally.
I also noticed vCenter Server reported VMTools wasn’t running.
I did a bit of research and found that Remote Desktop Services was in manual mode.
By changing the startup type to Automatic it not only fixed the Remote Desktop issue but vCenter Server reported in properly as well.
