Recently I had an issue where RDP to new Windows Server 2012 R2 machines required login – twice. Saved credentials in RDP Manager were being passed, but the target machine required a second login. Annoying and different than other servers I manage.
- Run “GPEDIT.MSC”
- Browse to “Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Security”
- Modify the “Always prompt for password upon connection” setting to “Disabled”
- Log out and log in
- Should accept saved credentials now
