I recently upgrade from XP Pro to Win 7 Ultimate performing a clean install.  I could connect to a Windows 2k8 with stored credentials from XP Pro, but after the migration to Win 7 Ultimate I keep getting the "Your System Administrator does not allow the use of saved credentials to the remote computer XXXXX because the identity is not fully verified.  Please enter new credentials".  I have checks the Terminal services setup on the win2k8 server and it does allow for the saving of credentials, the win 7 machine has no GP configured which would prohibit the delegation of saved credentials.  What am I missing

No changes have been made to the win 2k8 server, it also does not have Hyper-V, windows XP machines are still able to use stored credentials to connect to this server.  The win 2k8 server is not a part of our local domain.

I resolved the issue, I added a generic credential to the Credential manager for the machine i was connecting to and that resolved the issue.

Guys, this worked for me for ALL connections.  Using the asterix * alone is not documented, but works:

1. Open Group Policy Editor via cmd -> gpedit.msc (screenshot)
2. Navigate to Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Credentials Delegation\
3.Open Setting Allow Delegating Saved Credentials with NTLM-only Server Authentication, set it to Enabled click on button Show... and in Show Contents window add the single value "*" (asterix). Close all windows by pressing OK
4. Run cmd and enter gpupdate command to update your policy.

Now you should be able to use your saved credentials for all connections.
