Greetings!

WIndows XP PRO allows Fast Users Switching, but this is disabled when joining a domain.

Question:  Is it possible to re-enable this either via Group Policy, or on a specific workstation?
If so, how?

All I have been able to find is how to DIS-able this on stand-alones.

Thanks!!!!

Hi,

There is not a way to do this.  The reason that the MSGina is changed is for security purposes.  

You can login locally and use that as a user switch, rather than logging into the domain.
