I just installed SBS 2003 R2 and the last user to log on does not show up in the log on window.  I'm sure it was probably one of the questions I was asked when i wasn't really paying attention.  How do I get the last username and domain that logged on to show in the logon window?

Thanks,

There is an option in group policy to turn this off or on.

Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies/Security Options -> Interactive Logon -> Interactive Logon: Do not Display Last User Name

but where on the domain controller do i make this change?
?

On your DC, go to Start Button -> Administrator Tools -> Group Policy Management

You could then edit the Default Domain Policy, but I'd suggest creating a new policy instead, applying it to a few computers within your domain, and testing whether it works until you're comfortable altering the GP settings.

I try to avoid ever editing the Default Domain Policy anyway, but that's just me.
