How can I enable auto loging for remote desktop connection?

If you try to setup auto loging the following error message is received:

Your system administrator does not allow the use of saved credentials to logon to 
the remote computer computername/ipadress because its identity is not fully verified.
Please enter new credentials.

Try these steps:

  • On your local machine Open Windows command prompt type: gpedit.msc -> Press Enter -> a new window will popout
  • Go to Local Computer Policy –> Computer Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> System –> Credentials Delegation
  • Double Click on “Allow Delegating Saved Credentials with NTLM-only Server Authentication”
  • By default it will be “not configured”
  • You will see radio buttons -> Enable the policy
  • Click the “Show” button in the options window below and enter the value “TERMSRV/*”  (without quotes) into the list.
  • Click Apply button
  • Do the same thing for the following policies:
    -Allow Delegating Saved Credentials
    -Allow Delegating Default Credentials with NTLM-only Server Authentication
    - Allow Delegating Default Credentials
    - ...
  • Make sure that "Deny Delegating Saved Credentials" is not enabled or does not contain “TERMSRV/*” in the list
  • Close all windows
  • Open a command prompt and use “gpupdate /force” command to apply the policy directly.
