HTTP Error 500 from Virtual Server Admin Site – mstsc /admin, not mstsc /console

Sometimes you find things out the hard way. This one started bugging me a few weeks ago, so I started to dig around to see what I could find. Have you ever been faced with this (HTTP Error 500) when remotely logging on to the console session of a machine running Virtual Server and pointing…
