Environment

Pivotal Cloud Foundry® 1.10 and above

Windows Runtime Tile 1.10 and above 

Symptom

Remote Desktop to Windows Cell fails with the following error:

Resolution

Starting with Windows Stemcell version 1200.6, there are some security enhancements that will prevent Remote Desktop access. The security policies disable Remote Desktop by default. 

In order to enable Remote Desktop, add "enable_rdp" job in the Windows Utilities Runtime bosh-addon:

addons:
- name: <some-name>
  jobs:
  - name: enable_rdp
    properties:
      enable_rdp:
        enabled: true
    release: windows-utilities
  include:
    stemcell:
    - os: windows2012R2

This is documented in the Windows Stemcell version 1200.6 release notes.
