Server 2008 and 2003

Our AD is server 2008, we have two 2003 terminal servers. Is it possible to have the AD replicate the domain users info to the teminal server. We are using AD for authentication and our terminal servers are providing sessions to sales reps and when they  RDP into the TS. We are prompted to enter another user name.

Ideally I would like to make it one login onlu and if they need to RDP, then it automatically authenticates the user becuase the user is logged in to t he domain.

Any way to do this?

Yes, there is a way  to enable SSO with Terminal Services.

SSO is only available for RDWeb with Windows 2008 R2, therefore as you are using Windows 2003 terminal services, this isn't going to work.

So, are your 2003 TS boxes in a workgroup mode or another domain (ie. they are not in the 2008 AD Domain)?

SSO to TS is possible from 2008 TS onwards (not 2008 R2).
If you need sso badly, upgrade your servers or look for a third party sso solution. As the TS' don't use own password databases for domain users, there is no way to replicate anything. You will have to ask your users to create .rdp files and use the option to save their passwords.

McKnife, you are wrong.  It was introduced in Windows 2008 R2 RDWeb, see here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rds/archive/2009/08/11/introducing-web-single-sign-on-for-remoteapp-and-desktop-connections.aspx

Hmm, I already used it with 2008. Look at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc742808.aspx
> You can only use single sign-on for remote connections from a computer running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP with Service Pack 3 to an RD Session Host server running Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2008

Maybe I misunderstood the question then as I read it he was talking about web access which is definitely only available in R2
