Windows Server Remote Login Problem

I have a windows 2008 server that is part of the AD Domain.  When I try to login remotely it forces me to use my corp domain credentials (I guess because they set  AD up that way) and it won't let me remote in as the actual administrator on the server.  I am using remote desktop since I only need one logon to the server, no one else has to logon.  I do have administrative rights but some of the things I need to do I need to do under the administrator account.

Is there anyway to by pass this or when I remote in to the box using my local credentials have the login screen let me change users at that point.  Righ tnow I can only click Ok and it logs in as my credentials.

NOt sure if this makes sense but I thought maybe a setting I could change on local security policy or something.

You should be able to do this by adding a ".\" (minus the quotes of course) in front of the username in the login box.
