SYMPTOMS

You apply hotfix 938759 on a Windows Server 2003-based terminal server. After you restart the terminal server, Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) clients or Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) clients may be unable to connect to the terminal server.

CAUSE

Terminal Server (TermSrv) supports two protocols, the RDP protocol and the ICA protocol. After you apply hotfix 938759, the RDP and ICA listeners may not start after the computer restarts. When this happens, client computers that use a protocol for which the listener is not started cannot connect to the server.
