I don't have 4.2 in production at work. But I tried in my test
environment here at home (2 DCs - both 4.2.0):

Win10 -> Win81: OK
Win10 -> Win7: OK
Win81 -> Win7: OK
Win7 -> Win81: OK

For testing I created a new user (no home drive, no logonscript, no
server base profile, etc.) in AD and allowed the domain group "domain
users" to login via RDP on all three machines.

I can't see a problem here.

* What does the Windows event log says?
* Any interesting messages on your DC logfile?
* Can you temporary disable logonscript, connection of home drive, etc.)?
