Our company has set up a Windows 2008 Terminal Services server to use for SAS. Domain users are given Remote Desktop privileges to log into the server and do their SAS work. I have run into multiple issues getting Sharepoint authentication to work for these users.
I have installed the Web Client service on Server 2008.
The only way that I have gotten it to work is by mapping a drive or network place as a user with sufficient sharepoint permissions, but instead of automatically taking the domain login information that was given while initially logging into the server, it prompts for credentials.
After the credentials are entered, the network drive is mapped and everything seems okay, until the user logs off. When they log back in, they receive an error that the network drive cannot be mapped due to lack of authentication. However, it doesn't give them an option to reenter credentials. Therefore, the user has to disconnect the drive and then try to re-map it. However, when the credential prompt appears again, it will not accept it this time and continously re-prompts forever without any errors.
Basically, If someone could help me figure out sharepoint auto-authentication with Server 2008, I would be extremely grateful. This issue is not present with Workstation OSes, only with the server.
