Cloned Machine now no RDP

We have a hosted server we could not afford the hosting any more so we wanted to bring the server in-house. Not having physical access to the server and not wanting to rebuild the thing I used VMware converter and converted it to a VMware workstation files transfered them locally then converted those to use on our VMware vSphere servers. In case you are wondering we do have a licenses for this server. Everything worked great except I cannot RDP into the server. I have console access but no RDP. I have made sure the users have Remote access but when I try to login I get a user name and password error. Like I am typing in the wrong user name or password. I still have access to the hosted server everything works fine there.

Since you cloned the server have you checked the the Group Policy settings on the 2008 server?  Is this server a domain controller?

On the 2008 server go to a command prompt and type: GPEDIT.msc

Then navigate to: Computer Configuration> Windows Settings> Security Settings> Local Policies> User Rights Assignment> Allow Logon through terminal services

Check this GPO setting and make sure the users or groups that need access to RDP are defined there.

I cannot RDP into the server...

Questions:

Is your server joining to the current domain where everyone RDP from? If it is not, you have to set up local users in that server and log on with them.
The whole points is you change the LAN setting from the hosting company domain to yours. When you log on with console, you logon with the caching profile. RDP needs some sources of authentication and this case, you need to either join it to domain or set up local users.
