Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In an Active Directory Domain, I'm logging on via Remote Desktop to various AD clients.

In Windows 7, the Remote Desktop connection prompt displays the last username I used to connect to the client I've selected. But, this last username never has the correct picture. It always has the default user (%ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\user.bmp, the "sunflower" on most computers) picture.

I thought that setting the User Account Picture on a domain rather than just setting the User Account Picture in the per-computer profile would solve this, but nothing has changed.

I know this works outside of the Domain, since I connect to other machines as well, and see the proper User Account Pictures (User Icons) for those non-Domain users. How do I accomplish this?
