If you remember the fundamental law of the universe known as Murphy?s law, you will remember that if anything can go wrong, it will. That?s not actually true, but it’s certainly funny, and for computers in general it seems all too accurate. I’m happy to report that Windows Server 2008 gives us some procedures to use in case we see errors or problems with Terminal Services. In fact, in Windows Server 2008 Microsoft introduced a new mode to make logging maintenance issues even easier. I’ll discuss it now.

Terminal Services?Terminal CompTIA Network+ Drain Mode Feature Back in the ?old days?of Windows Server 2003, administrators would sometimes have to take servers hosting Terminal Services down for maintenance. Usually, this was a big hul- labaloo and involved logging on to the server and using the command line to disable every single connection logging into the server and then bringing the server of?ine to do the maintenance. Now, with Windows Server 2008, there is a new and improved way of isolat- ing problems using the Terminal Server Drain Mode feature.

The Terminal Server Drain Mode feature allows an administrator to shut down any new sessions being established with a server. This is useful because it doesn?t cut off currently existing sessions. It just makes it impossible for new sessions to be established. You can put your server in the Terminal Server Drain Mode feature in one of two ways: either through the GUI or through the command line. Either way produces the same results. It’s a matter of personal preference. Some administrators like to do everything via the command line, and some prefer to use the graphical user interface.

Using the GUI, you can go to Terminal Services Configuration from the Terminal MCSE Exams menu in Administrative Tools and then double-click Terminal Server Drain Mode, as shown in Figure 4.3, which brings you to a dialog box.

Alternatively, you can use the command line with the change logon command, chglogon.exe. One of the best tricks you can do for yourself?both in order to pass the exam and to become a better administrator?is to memorize certain event codes. The reason for this is twofold. First, it helps you pass your exam. Second, if you immediately recognize an event code and Don’t have to look it up in Microsoft’s documentation, you will save yourself a lot of research time.
