Frozen Remote Desktop Solution

I'm working for a client, they set me up with 3 VMs to work on.  The VMs are located on another domain.  I connect via Microsoft Remote Desktop.  So in order to get files there, I have to copy them.

Some of the files are over a gig.  And today, while copying a large file, the server froze up.  Wasn't sure how to get access back, tried everything.

So instead, I logged onto another VM which was operational, went to Server Manager, added the frozen VM to the list of Servers, and pressed the "Restart" option.

In about 5 minutes the frozen server was back online and I resumed the copy.

It's a neat trick if you ever run into similar situation.

And there you go~!
