Often if the connection fails it seems to loose the saved password. Try creating and saving a new rdp connection client.

PS- there is also an option under the RDP-Tcp properties fin Remote Desktop Session host on the Logon Settings "always prompt for password" that would override saved passwords. In a default configuration this is not enabled. I believe there are also matching group policies to enforce that as well, but as mentioned these would have had to be enabled.
