I have just setup a windows 2003 server running in hyper-V.

When I log in via Hyper-V it works fine.

When I try to login via remote desktop I get a bad user name or password error.

I have:

  • Disabled the firewall
  • Enabled remote connections

Before I did the above I did not get to the login screen. I can ping the ip address of the image.

I am trying to login as Administrator.

Anyone have an idea about how to fix this?


I have now managed to fix this by changing the password to something without special characters. Strange thing is the I could not see any problems with the passord, had tried typing it into the user name field to check it.
