Running into trouble connecting via RDP. Not the port / ACL issue I've seen other questions about, I can hit the specified IP:Port.

Example build:

# https://www.appveyor.com/docs/build-environment/#build-worker-images
image: Visual Studio 2017

  - ps: iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/appveyor/ci/master/scripts/enable-rdp.ps1'))

build: false

  debug_artifacts: '_debug'

  - ps: |

      net.exe user /add wtf "Password123!" /Y
      net.exe localgroup administrators wtf /add

Using this, I cannot connect in as 'appveyor'. I can connect in as 'wtf'.

Not sure what's causing this. Not something I personally use, just wanted to mention it in case others run into the issue. I do notice group membership is slightly different. Not sure if this is specific to Server 2016, your configuration, User Rights Assignment, local group membership, or some combination.
