  • SBS2008 RWW and Windows 8 problems

    Hello and thanks for reading,

    I can't RDP from the SBS208 RWW site. I googled the problem and found that putting the url of the rww site (in my case https://remote.mycompany.com) in the trusted site zone and in the compatibility list, should solve the problem, but it doesn't work for me

    I don't really know what else I can do. I'm stucked with the same problem.
    Our sbs2008 box is fully patched including the latest rollover, and the situation is like this:
    1. We can RDP from the SBS 2008 remote web workplace using any Windows XP and 7 clients. We've just purchased a couple of new laptops with Windows 8 Professional OS, and
    2. You can log-in to the RWW and you get all the options depending on the user (admins can log in to the server, etc)
    3. When I select to connect to a remote desktop, I get the username and password dialog box, I enter the credentials and it does not work, it keeps asking for the password as if it was wrong
    I added https://remote.mycompany.com to the trusted sites and also to the compatibility view.

    I did the test to directly connect to the machine through the Windows 8 computer from the LAN and it works. So I think we have some problem related to the TS of the SBS box, because I can login to the RWW site, select the computer I want to log-in, but I can't log-in it doesn't accept the credentials.

    Any help would be great,

    Thanks

      Hi Jude,

      I solved my problem.
      This was my solution:
      IIS-manager --> go to SBS Web application --> verification --> anonymous yes
      I also Updated the server with the new Updatepakket 6 Windows Small Business Server 2008 (KB2729101)

        You might find its a problem with IE10? And that you'll need to set the webpage to compatability mode to be able to RDP from RWW.

          Make sure your SBS install is fully patched with the latest update rollups. Trusted Sites and Compatibility Mode in IE10 should then do the trick.

            You need to hit the compatibilty button as well (as 5habbaranks posted)

                Hi again,

                After so many tests, I can't find out what is happening

                SBS 2008 box is fully patched, including roll up 6 and every available update.

                The most confusing is that I can log in to the remote machines "randomly". I've just tested it in a brand new computer (DELL XPS13).

                After adding the https://remote.mycompany.com to the trusted sites and compatibility mode, I log in to the RWW with no problems, then I select the remote computer to log-in (W7 Pro) using the correct credentials:

                myconpany.local\user
                password

                It doesn't work, I get the same log-in dialog box every time with the log-in failure.

                I tried:

                mycompany\user (without .local)
                password

                AND it works, I can log-in. This is too weird.

                Ok so I think I found a solution, I disconnect and try to connect again and I can't log in never ever. The same happened with a different computer.

                Any idea would be greatly appreciated

                Jud
