I am trying to configure a Windows Server 2008 as a Home Server for my personal use (mainly for storing documents, hosting source-control, etc.).
The "server" consists of an Intel Atom 2700DC board and an Intel SSD.
Configuring remote access to the server, I am confronted with a very strange problem: As long as a monitor is connected to my server, remote access works without any problems.
However, when no monitor is connected at boot-time, remote access simply won't work (I keep getting errors when trying to connect that the remote server was not found or that remote access is disabled).
Windows definitely boots when no monitor is connected as I receive a message asking me whether to enter safe mode when booting after powering the server down by plugging the power cord.
When I plug in a monitor after boot, it stays turned off and remote desktop connections still fail.
Do you have any ideas about what I could try?
