Wierd issue:  We set up a second domain controller on our existing domain.  Both DCs are Windows 2003 server (standard).  After a short period of time, the "Log Off" button disappeared on the new server!  So now the only way to log off is to do so from Task Manager.  I've never seen this happen before.  Can anyone shed some light on this?

If i recall correctly, the log off button is only shown by default on a member server or a stand-alone server. You should be able to force it to show with a group policy on a Domain Controller.

However, a Ctrl+Alt+Del will still alow you to log off.

Good Luck,

Thanks for the reply.  How would I set this in a group policy?

In Group Policy you can find it under User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Start Menu and Taskbar

There should be a setting in there called "Add Logoff to the Start Menu" and a corresponding "Remove Logoff on the Start Menu". Both settings have decent explanations attached to them.
