WFP drivers may cause a failure to disconnect the RDP connection to a multiprocessor computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008

Consider the following scenario on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008:

  • The computer has a multiprocessor.
  • Some Windows Filtering Platform (WFP) drivers are running on the computer.

In this scenario, you log on to and log off from the computer by using a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connection. However, if you log on to and log off from the computer many times, the RDP connection may not be disconnected successfully. Therefore, when you try to log on to the computer again, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:

Another session is busy disconnecting

Note: If you restart the computer, you can log on to the computer again.
