Login with Local Administrator account resets the login prompt to local computer. Windows 2000
Posted on 2004-09-15
When logging into a system with the local administrator account we log into the computer itself and not the domain. Now when the user logs in it presents the user in the logon box the local computer name rather then the domain they need to log in to. I want to be able to run a batch file or script to change it back to the domain because our users aren't the brightest in the world and call us up to login when they are logging in to the local computer rather than switching to the domain.
Does anyone know the registry keys that need to be changed? Does anyone have a batch or script I could use to accomplish this? Does anyone have a template I could use? I know someone was doing this before but I forgot to ask him and I didn't catch his name.
Is there any other way around this without having to modify a GPO which is not an option in this case. We are running Windows 2000 pro on all client systems.
Thanks ahead of time.
