Group policy "Remove Last Logon" defaults to local logon?

When I remove the last logon name by means of the group-policy-setting in "Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options", it appears that windows defaults to a local useraccount when login on. It is very hard to explain to an 'avarage pc-user' that they have to change the dropdownmenu to the domain-name every time they logon. Is it possible to let "ctrl+alt+del" default to a domain-account?

thnx, cheers ... BS

The logon domain is stored under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\DefaultDomainName

If you set your logon domain there your users should be happy.

Only one thing makes me a bit unhappy: normally Windows should remember what the last domain logged on was, even when you set the policy to remove the last logon name... so your user needs to change the drop down box maximum one time and thats it....

another solution might be to have your users login using this format:  user@domain.local  <-- when you use this type of logon, you do not need to use the drop down box at all.
