hi all,

I'm having an issue with remoting into some PCs.

I'm currently using a Windows 7 VDI as my main PC. Ever since I switched to this thing I haven't been able to login to a remote pc. When I open RDC and connect I get to the login menu and then login using my normal credentials, which I know to be correct, yet I still get the dreaded

"The system could not log you on, make sure your username and domain are correct..."

Like I said I know my credentials are right, and I know it's not the PC I'm trying to connect to that is having an issue, I can remote into PCs using RDC on other PCs or if I use DAMEWARE with the same exact credentials. Anyone have any ideas on what could be going on with this? Any help would be appreciated.

Turns out there is a firmware issue or something that causes one of the shift keys on the keyboard to not function properly with the VDI. I used the other shift key I'm not used to using and I was able to connect. Turns out a couple other people have the same issue with their keyboards and the VIDs.
