RemoteApp Logon Screen too small RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are planning to use TS RemoteApp to publish some applications. The RDP client will be on a different domain which means that SSO will not be possible. One small issue is that when you get to the server side authentication, the logon screen is really small. I know for a fact that users will not like this. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so does anyone have a suggested work around?

    Thanks

The problem was that the 'Require server authentication' option was ticked in Remoteapp Deployment Settings. I've now unticked this option on all terminal servers.

    I have network level authentication enabled so all authentication is done on the client side now, negating the issue with the small server side logon fields.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Interesting issue. Can you please share some details on it?

    1) If you have trusts between those two Domains SSO should work
    2) Logon Scree is small as - resolution or what? You can define the resolution in RDP file

  • Hi,

    Thanks for responding to this.

    1.There is no trust between the two domains so I assume that SSO will not be possible?

    2.The resolution for the app itself is fine... its just the authentication screen where the logon fields are really small. I know this probably seems like a minor issue but its the kind of thing that users get hung up on.
    I've tried editing the rdp. files with custom resolution values:

    desktopwidth:i:< value >

    desktopheight:i:< value >

    Seems to be the same whatever vaulues I specify. Am I doing something wrong here?

    If you compare the following two screenshots you should see what I'm talking about:

    Standard RDP: http://cid-efa1007fd446804f.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Public/rdc.JPG

    Any ideas on this?

    Thanks

  • Did you find out a way to make the logon screen larger, or has NLA proved to work ok?  I've had problems with the client authenticating when it comes to expired passwords - have you had the same issue?
