So having refurbished machines with the same MAC address on all of them causes fun network issues. OEMs flashing BIOS with templates that contain all the same MAC address is not easy to troubleshoot until you check your DHCP server and see "88:88:88:88:88:88" and you say...well that cant be its real MAC address. Nope it is and it is for all the machines just bought. Sigh...

RDP to Windows7/8 via Microsoft MacOS X Client and getting "Auth" errors when you KNOW the password, Domain/Computer name are correct? Guess what? Likely it's a key STUCK on the physical keyboard at the terminal. Windows RDP clients don't have the issue as they pass cred differently it would seem.  I removed the "stack of paper" that was sitting on the keyboard (client workstation through RDP Gateway) and boom...logged in fine.  I then reproduced the error. Yep, auth errors when a key is held down. Awesome. Lucky I had my remote tool that shows client pressed keys and mouse movement.
