Can't remote in machine deployed using MDT 2012? RRS feed

  • Question

  • So after i've deployed windows 7 pro (Machine A) from MDT 2012 , and wanted to remote in via RDP. However i can't seem to remote in, even after enabling Remote Desktop , disabling windows firewall  and ensuring local GPO allows RDP.

    After hours of googling, i realize that the default GPO deployed by MDT 2012 introduces a registry "LMcompatibilityLevel"
    with the value of 5. ( I checked on machines installed via ISO media, this registry doesn't even exist)

    From here ,
    I understand its all about the authentication protocol (though i don't really understand much about it), and my machine
    (domain machine) has a value of 1 for "LMcompatibilityLevel" registry. So i changed the key value on Machine A from 5 to 1, and now i can remote into the machine.

    So my question is, is there a way to modify the default GPO package specifically on that value during deployment?

    Or should i disable it?

    Whats the importance of this registry key? It'd be good anyone could guide me on this matter.

    Thanks a bunch!
