I have two windows 7 pro machines and 2 xp pro machines. Every once in a while I need to remote into the 2008 server at work. I can do that perfectly fine when I am using my XP machines. With my Windows 7 machines, I can remote into any workstation at work but it will not allow me to remote into the 2008 server. It asks me to enter my credentials (I try typing in the admin username and password but it doesn't work). It doesn't bring me to the usual full screen where I need to put the username and password to join the domain, a different box pops up asking me for credentials. From what I read, I can log onto 2008 server with Win 7. What am I doing wrong???

Are you using the Remote Desktop Tool located in Start > All Programs > Accessories?

Is this a local admin account? Preface the account name with the machine name... like so: myserver\administrator

Weird. That wasn't the case with XP. I wonder why you have to do that now? And yes it worked so thank you!
