Login to the local machine
On Windows Server 2003 and 2008 I could always use 'local\username' or '.\username' and login to the local machine but on Windows Server 2016 it seems like I never could. Whenever I asked someone with more experience then myself he always insisted I had to use 'machine_name\username' but never addressed the bigger issue, i.e.: clarified this was a change that happened since 2012 or 2016 server. I tried finding some information online about some kind of change which would explain this behavior but I wasn't able to find anything, which makes me really curious and hence why I'm asking here.Does anyone know anything about this? The login attempt was over RDP. TIA!
