I run today into an odd issue, a user was not able to to RDP into their new Terminal Server.
When you check on the RDP connection tab it says NLA is not supported.
The cause seems to be an issue with a DLL file in the Registry.
And here is fix:
Configure Network Level Authentication
1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then press ENTER.
2. In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
3. In the details pane, right-click Security Packages, and then click Modify.
4. In the Value data box, type tspkg. Leave any data that is specific to other SSPs, and then click OK.
5. In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders
6. In the details pane, right-click SecurityProviders, and then click Modify.
7. In the Value data box, type credssp.dll. Leave any data that is specific to other SSPs, and then click OK.
8. Exit Registry Editor.
9. Restart the computer.

There is no default GPO to set the Desktop background. We have a terminal server with a white wallpaper, however the default background is black, thus you can not read the icon’s font. To fix that, you can create an ADM template.
KEYNAME "Control Panel\Colors"
PART !!labeltext DROPDOWNLIST REQUIRED
NAME "Black" VALUE "0 0 0"
categoryname="Background Color Options"
policyname="Change the background color of the client computer"
explaintext="This policy sets the background color of the client computer"
labeltext="Choose a color"
Save that file to your server and name it ‘backgroundcolor.adm’. Open up Group Policy Management and create a new GPO and link it to the right OU.
Edit the GPO, go to User Configuration -> Administrative Templates, right click Administrative Templates and then Add Template
Browse to the Backgroundcolor.adm and add it in. Under Administrative Templates you will now see a custom category called “Set Background Color”
To change the colour of the desktop, select “Desktop Background Color policy”, then enable it.
Simply then enter the RGB value of the color you want.
