The agent failed to start rd session

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I first noticed this problem after performing a new install of agent 4.8.3 on an SBS 2011 server.   Capture.thumb.PNG.3e8593d3c33a63dbc6e4fe 

I thought it was related to just this Server (which has been rebooted since install and the firewall is disabled), but found that this error occurs with a number of Windows 7 hosts as well.  I can't immediately establish the reason why some hosts connect and others don't.

I've not encountered this error before so am unsure where to start with troubleshooting.

Appreciate any assistance.

Hi,

Can you please check to see if the affected systems are running a 32-bit operating on a 64-bit supported processor?

Do you mean a 32 Bit version of Pulseway Agent, or the OSE?

I have checked two of the systems that fail to connect (Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7) and both OSE are 64 bit.

I've just noticed that I am unable to connect to any host that is on an external network to our Enterprise Server.  (I'm definitely trying to Remote Desktop, not Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection)

Found the cause of my problem.  The Pulseway server was presented to the Internet via Windows Application Proxy, hence the public IP address of each host was that of the WAP server.

Hi Ken,

Do you use a Proxy to connect to the Internet? If so, try adding *.pulseway.com and pulseway.com to the proxy direct access list.

I am also running into this situation. We just upgraded our Server 2008 R2 64Bit to Server 2012 R2 64Bit to make use of the remote desktop function and tool. However when trying to connect to any device we have it setup for we get the error "The agent failed to start the rd session." 

Any help with this would be amazing.

We do not use a proxy. Our Pulseway server is located on AWS though.

I too am running an Enterprise server behind WAP.  Is there any fix for allowing remote desktop to work, when it thinks the clients are on the local network (thanks to WAP for masq the source IP)?

      I am attempting to simply change the name of a client workstation form "Steve Doe" to "Brandon Doe" and it has so far been unsuccessful.  I have tried from the client side, and from the dashboard manager.  So far all attempts have not worked.  When I attempt to do it from the client side, the client goes offline, and comes back up ~ 3 minutes later (it doesn't actually turn off, pulseway just detects it as offline).  Doing it locally freezes application and forces it to be stuck at "Loading Scheduled Tasks...".  I have ran into this before.  I fear uninstalling will prevent a re installation.  The only thing that solved it in the past was a reinstall of windows.
      Any help appreciated.

      Hi there, I have installed Pulseway on 2 PC's and according to my subscription page. I get 2 free licences.
      I was using Pulseway quite successfully last night till I received an email saying I had reached the Notification limit and to remove this limitation I should consider getting a subscription.
      I have logged on today to try and purchase a subscription for 2 licences as luckily that is all I need at this stage but due to it saying the first 2 agents are free I can't purchase a full subscription for just 2 licences
      How can I get unlimited notification for my 2 free licences?

      When u use the built-in script "Add Automatically Started Services in Pulseway" some services wil be monitored that are triggert and not always on.
      This wil result in unwanted notifications.
      The first variable has the servicenames you want to disable.
      $services = @('gupdate', 'ShellHWDetection', 'sppsvc', 'RemoteRegistry', 'MapsBroker', 'tiledatamodelsvc', 'WbioSrvc', 'WinDefend', 'CDPSvc') $servicesRegex = [string]::Join('|', $services) # create the regex $regservices = Get-ItemProperty "HKLM:\Software\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\Services" $regservicesSplit = $regservices -split ";" foreach ($regservice in $regservicesSplit) { If ($regservice -match $servicesRegex ) { $servicesSplit = $regservice -split "=" $servicesTrim = $servicesSplit[0] $servicesTrim = $servicesTrim.Trim() Remove-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\Software\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\Services" -Name $servicesTrim Write-Host $regservice " Verwijderd" } } Hope it helps.

      As my monitored machines are updating to the new Windows 10, the agent simply will not start automatically..
      Any idea why?
