I have eight 2008 R2 session host servers and one  R2 broker configured to participate in my farm. I am allowing disconnected sessions for 10 minutes however when a client attempts to reconnect to their disconnected session they are forced to enter their logon credentials twice. As a very busy hospital allowing disconnected sessions is very beneficial to several departments but this is frustrating staff. Any ideas??

How are the connecting to your server, via VPN, local LAN or ??? Is their any similarity in those who have to logon twice, same OS, from the same location or is it happening to everyone?

you have to use single sign on in order to avoid double login prompt

For XP you need to enter below registry keys manually and have to have Windows XP SP3

Also you need to apply KB953760 on XP SP3 machines

On Windows 7 below settings to be done

I changed the log on settings in RDP connection properties to use client-provided log on information. I also noticed the broker was not configured for dedicated farm redirection. That seems to have resolved the problem.
