Login to Virtual Machine through Windows Server 2008 R2

Posted 25 January 2012 - 02:11 PM

Specifically, we're talking having a local Windows Server 2008 R2 user account, lets say named "Bob", log into a local virtual machine named "Win7".

So, "Bob" - instead of logging into the Server desktop - will login to the Virtual Machine instead, so he'll get a Windows 7 environment. And any other user, say "Admin", will get the Server desktop. Make sense?

I've tried using the "Remote Personal Desktop" with "localhost\Win7" and "WORKGROUP\Win7@localhost", but those didn't work. I've tried a number of other things, but it pains me to list them all, and it's entirely possible I may have overlooked something.

So, questions:
A) Is this actually possible
B ) If A is yes, how?

[Edit] For what it's worth, I've googled the fuck out of this query and come up with very little. And the stuff I have found is so enigmatic that it's unreal...

If you were using Linux, you'd create the users, and then set their permissions accordingly.

The computers where I work are this way. You can change anything unless your an admin.

Maybe this will lead you in the right direction:
