Windows Server 2008 Stored User Names and Passwords

I have been setting up my development environmet in Server 2008 RC0 to start getting a feel for it. Since I deal with multiple domains and user accounts including, my home and clients, I use "Stored User Names and Passwords". Well, this appears to have changed slightly. The way i set it up in XP Pro and Server 2003 looks like this

As I went to set this up in Server 2008, I had to find out where. In the Control Panel, there is an item called "User Accounts". In this window, there is a link on the left called "Manage your network passwords". This brings up the familiar screen for setting up cached accounts. My first attempt gave me this

Notice the validation error. So, a couple of quick tests and I eneded up with this

where I used *.MyDomain instead of MyDomain\*. In my first test of this (connecting to network share), it appears to work fine. The next set of testing will be if it works when authenticating to sql server and tfs. I will find out once I get all that loaded up.

After lots of neglect and a change in hosting, I am working on some new blog entries and finally checked comments.

No, I have not been able to get this to work wiht SQL 2005. I have not tried SQL 2008. It does work with TFS 2008. Something in Sever 2008 and Vista caused windows authentication to sql to not work this way. I have tried to fix it enlisting the help of others more savy on AD security with no luck.

Can anyone recommend the well-priced RMM software for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use or How do they compare to these guys I found recently: [url=] N-able N-central software remote access
