  • DNAS Disconnects when ending RDP session to VM

    So I have set up my DNAS server on a VM on a remote server and, long story short, if I RDP into it, start up my stream with sc_serv and the DSP plugin for Winamp, then close the RDP session, the stream will end and the VM will essentially suspend.

    I have changed every possible setting in Windows 7 to keep the machine awake and I am not selecting log off when I disconnect my RDP session...but the stream disconnects right after I disconnect my RDP session. When I reconnect, it almost looks like VMWare is logging me out of my session but supposedly isn't.

    Anyone have any idea what might be happening here?

    Update: SOLVED

    The solution is to have the console keep you logged in.

    Steps to reproduce solution:

    1. Open an elevated command prompt
    2. Determine what sessionID you are currently using by entering "qwinsta"
    3. Enter tscon [SessionID] /dest:console
    4. Your RDP session will end abruptly and your stream will continue to run

    You will then be able to RDP back into the machine when needed.

      If it happens again switch to TIGHT VNC that leaves the audio where its supposed to be and shouldn't cause any disconnects.

      Its what we were using once upon a time.
