SYMPTOMS
On a computer that is running Windows Server 2008, you create a local user account that is a member of the Local Administrator group. Then, you add the Terminal Server server role. After you do this, the user's icon and name are not displayed on the local server's logon screen.
MORE INFORMATION

STATUS
This behavior is by design.
