Q

Service failure messages don't show up when administering through Terminal Services

When a service failure (failed to start or Dr. Watson) message is displayed on the monitor attached to a server, it does not show up when we try to administer the machine remotely using Terminal Services. Is there a way to see this?
No, those messages are shown only on the local system. Terminal Services connections are remote sessions, similar to accessing a database or pulling file from a share. You will need to view the Event Viewer for details about these types of issues.
