Enable Single Sign-On for Desktop RemoteApp in RD Web Access

I have setup a RD Web Access portal with RemoteApps (Word, Excel etc) as well as the Desktop RemoteApp. All the Remote Desktop Services roles are installed on the same machine except for the Virtualization Host role. However Single Sign-On does not work for the Desktop RemoteApp as the user is required to enter their logon credentials again. I have installed a self signed certificate (for now) and no certificate errors are present when connecting to the RemoteApps. Is this normal to re-enter user credentials when accessing the Desktop RemoteApp or have other people encountered this problem before?

SSO is only available in Windows 2008 R2 and you need to configure it, see here for how: http://blogs.msdn.com/rds/archive/2009/08/11/introducing-web-single-sign-on-for-remoteapp-and-desktop-connections.aspx

demazter is correct. Unless you have 2008 R2 this will not work.

The machine in question is a Windows 2008 R2 Standard with all Remote Desktop roles excluding the Virtualisation Host. Remote Desktop RemoteApp prompts the user to login again after already logging into the web portal.

What was the fix?
ITAS01, what was the solution? I amhaving similar issues. RemoteApp SSO works, but not the Desktop Apps - requires uesr to enter credentials again.
