Login screen to Windows 2008 R2 Terminal server
Posted on 2013-05-16
We just replaced our Windows 2003 terminal server with Windows 2008 R2 terminal server.
On old terminal server, we used to get to the server and get the login screen of username, password and domain.
On the new terminal server, even before we actually see the Windows 2008 R2 server, the RDP client asks us for the username and password.
Ideally, when a user puts the server name in the RDP client and clicks on connect, we want two things.
1. Instead of asking for username password right then, it should take us to the server and it should present us with the username and passwords field.
2. The logon domain, by default, is set to the servers's computer name. It should be set to the domain name.
Setup we have is simple. One domain controller and one terminal server.
Users logon to the TS from domain computers as well as from remote locations where the computers are not part of the domain.
What I don't know is if this is RDP client issue or server side issue and I don't know what setting to change.
