Connectivity via RDP to our Microsoft Windows Server 2003 web and database servers unpredictably drops at varying points after we change the server dates. It usually occurs when we leave the server dates changed and remain logged in via RDP overnight. We can only restore RDP connectivity with a server reboot or a reset of the server dates to the current date.
We use these servers for web application user acceptance purposes; moving the server dates into the future simulates the passage of time in the web application. Staff then perform user acceptance tests of web application functionality.
Thanks for any insight into why this may be occurring. How would I even begin to debug such a problem? I am working with our hosting provider and hope to have additional details soon.
