I am configuring PGP desktop on my machine and trying to get SSO to work.  It seems to be working fine but when it gets past the PGP login and gets to the windows login it says cannot log you in.  It is because the domain is local and not the domain.  I have tried setting it in the registry but keeps defaulting to the local machine when I reboot.  Any ideas

If you logon once to the domain it should default to the domain in the dropdown on next logon.

Thats what I thought.  I login to the domain then reboot.  When it comes back up it is still at the local login.

OK, then let's try this:

In Regedit find this key:

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

The values for the following entries can be changed to the NetBIOS name of your domain to see if they stick:

AltDefaultDomainName
CachePrimaryDomain
DefaultDomainName

Once those are set, you should see the domain dropdown stay put.

Another way you can try: Try to login as local login, then rename your PC NAME (with any others PC Name) > disconnected from the domain and join under "workgroup" > then reboot and re-login to local account > reconnect to your domain and see whether it helps .......
