Can remote users RDP without a domain name?
Posted on 2013-12-20
We have hundreds of clients who utilize RDP to connect to a Server 2003 machine. Over the years, these users have been setup with just their username in the RDP file. I have configured a small 2008 R2 RDP farm with 2 session hosts and a session broker. Everything works perfectly except for the fact that unless the domain is specified in the username box, users will not be able to login. I have tried options such as the group policy setting for default domain as well as the registry entry on each server. This now allows my domain connected computer to login without a specified domain but if I test from an outside computer that has never been connected to the domain, it will not allow me to login unless I specify domain name. Has anyone run into this before and are there any other options I have missed? We're trying to avoid having to call each client and change their RDP file. Thank you.r
