When you try to log on to your Microsoft Windows 2000 Terminal Server, the server may stop responding. You do not receive an error message, and your screen appears black.
This problem may occur if the Windows redirector (the program that intercepts requests for resources in a computer) stops responding because a transport cannot be deleted (torn down). Transports handle message delivery and routing. The transport cannot be deleted because a Microsoft Exchange request for a copy operation is pending.
