I’m testing a little bit with one of my Terminal Servers and noticed I could not connect through RDP with a normal (non-admin) user. Admin users fine but normal users were terminated immediately. I reviewed all settings for a while but couldn’t find the issue. Eventlog gave me a nice warning:

The Desktop Window Manager has exited with code (0xd00002fe)

In out Lab environment we’ve got Active Directory Federation Server installed on our (only) Domain Controller. After rebooting the DC ADFS hangs on startup. maweeras on the technet forums posted the solution.

Short story :
Put the Microsoft Key Distribution Service on automatic en reboot your Domain Controller
