We have a sensitive server that is running windows 2008r2.  I need to be able to display a message when a user attempts to login using remote desktop.  I can get it to work if you are logging in locally, but not remote.  Any help would be great... thanks experts

From Administrative Tools - Local Security Policy - Local Policies - Security Options -
Interactive Logon : Message text for users attempting to log on

This setting will pop up message for users connecting locally or through rdp

I have that set, but on 2008 it pops up after you login.... I am trying to find a way to have the message show up as either before you login or part of the login

any other thoughts... looking at the login process I would guess it would require forcing the connecting user to have to authenticate by putting his user name and password into the "ctrl, alt, del" screen instead of it being passed by the RD client.  I just cant find any setting to do that.

You might be able to force it by downloading an older (maybe less secure) remote desktop client.  Microsoft's client stopped allowing a connection to the logon screen for authentication.  On a Mac, you can use CoRD to connect to the logon screen.
