Problems with Members Only via Remote Desktop Services on 2008RS2
Our Members Only
installation is quite stable when we use it
across our LAN. But when a few people get on
via Terminal Server, it starts to throw
exceptions. In particular we get "C0000006"
exceptions. This is the exact installation that
runs fine over the LAN - we've just mapped to
it on the Terminal Server
Well, that's the problem right there - RDS on 2008RS2 has issues running applications that are not resident on the terminal server box. The application runs fine when just one instance is in use - but when there are multiple users connected via RDP, one user's logout can cause other users to suddenly close files opened over the net- including executable files. Apparently this was a problem that was fixed on Server 2003 in one of the service packs, and then reintroduced in the newer server OS.
There is a Microsoft knowledge-base article about this problem here:
The solution is to put a copy of the Members Only program folder on the terminal server. This can take a bit of care, and may involve the relocation of other files to a new folder, to avoid duplicating settings files. If you are having this problem, drop us a note and we can help you reconfigure.
