I will preface this question by saying this is my first foray into Terminal Server/Remote Desktop Server configuration, so I may have done something obvious wrong that is causing my issues.
I am attempting to configure a Remote Desktop Serivces server for our remote offices to connect in to the network and run our accounting app.
Our network is configured as follows:
DC1 - Windows Server 2003 Standard, R2, SP2
DC2 - Server 2008 Enterprise, R2 (Virtual)
TS1 - Server 2008 Enterprise, R2 (Virtual)
The Remote Desktop Session Host and Remote Desktop Web Access roles are installed on TS1.
The Remote Desktop Licensing role is installed on DC2. The licensing server has been activated, and the RD User CALs have been applied.
I chose to not use Network Level Authentication, as my remote users have a mixture of XP Pro and Windows 7 workstations.
Here is where things get strange...
If I try to log on to the RD Web page (https://cspvmts/rdweb
) from a workstation on the domain, using IE8, I am first prompted with a Windows Security logon. However, I cannot log on with any domain accounts (user or administrator). After 3 tries I am directed to a '401 not authorized' page. However, I CAN log on to the RDWeb if I use the machine administrator account and password. Once in, I can then log on to the RDS Default Connection and launch the accounting app from the RemoteApp tab.
If I try to log on to the RD Web page from a workstation on the domain using Mozilla Firefox v. 3.6.13, I CAN log in at the Windows Security logn with a domain user or admin account. I can also log in to the RDS Default Connection login. However, my RemoteApp tab is missing the launch icon for our accounting software. I have verified using RemoteApp Manager on the RDH that the RemoteApp program is set to show in RD Web Access.
Creating the .rdp file works ok. I haven't yet tried to create a Windows Installer Package.
Any thoughts would be appreciated....
