Orchestrator running robot on VM - RDP issues


#1

I’m trying to run a RPA automation on an unattended robot hosted on a VM through Orchestrator v2018.2 but this is failing

The UiPath Robot service on the VM tries to create the RDP session but this is timing out after 120 seconds and is returning the following error.

“A specified logon session does not exist. It may have already been terminated.”

I’m investigating and it looks like this is caused by a legal notice that is displayed after the RDP username/password dialogue.

I’ve temporarily removed the legal notice and UiPath service can now make the RDP connection, resolving the issue.

Has anyone else experienced this issue and managed to resolve this another way?

you can keep the login session alive by using registry value change:
