Remote Desktop Connection

We have computers around the company in meeting rooms.  These systems boot to a default logon.  The employees then use remote desktop to connect to their own computers in their respective offices. On initial start of RDC they get (image1), after putting in computer name they get (image2).  As you can see there is no domain name, if they forget to put in domain\username they do not get in the system and hence the call.  Is there a way to have the domain name added by default?  I know that on image1 if they open options they get the opportunity to add all that information (image4).  But users will be users, so was hoping to make it fool proof.

Hi,

u can use GPO follow this rule.

1. Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Credentials Delegation.

2. On the right pane, double click Allow Saved Credentials with NTLM-only Server Authentication.

3. Click Enable. In the Show contents dialog box, click Add, type the name of remote computer(server) in this format: TERMSRV\<computername>, then click OK.

Now check if it works.

Hi,

You need to modify below registry file to fix this issue,

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
The name of the key is "DefaultDomainName" Enter the name of your domain name inside this registry key.

It will automatically select that when users try to login instead of selecting the Local Machine name in the "Log on to" field.
