I have an business application that uses the system date for all of it's date processing. We need to be able to fix the date to a particular date, and at midnight, reset the date back to this fixed date. This was all possible in Windows Server 2003, and though we had to connect to file shares on the box using the IP address instead of the machine name, it would work. We're in the middle of an upgrade to Windows Server 2012, and we've found a number of problems.
1) Connecting via Remote Desktop doesn't work anymore - we've managed to resolve this using a custom connections file and changing the type of authentication.
2) File shares do not seem to work anymore at all
I'm sure something had to be changed on the Windows 2003 servers to get this to work, but it was around 7 years ago that it was all set-up, and I wasn't involved in that area at the time.
Any tips would be really appreciated. I've been googling this several times to no avail!
