so i've just received 4 new hp 5440 thin clients, great, work a treat, easy to configure, except one thing!

when you connect, it asks you for the username and password, fine.

logoff, back on, and it stores the last username, along with a prefix of the computer it logged onto, which is incorrect!

these are running windows ce 6, and i can dump the arp settings from system, delete the relevant registry key, re-import, and that works fine, however there is nothing i can seem to do, or know of that can automate this process.

anyone have any ideas?

i dont believe that you dont have a choice but to save the username and have to manually delete it before logging on each time...!

many thanks!

To clarify, this is logging on to the thin client unit itself, the windows CE bit? (as opposed to an RDP/ICA client after the CE logon has happened)

I have an HP t5540 with CE 6 and it does not remember the last username used for the CE logon (though all ours are set to autologon and autostart a citrix connection).

If the username you're talking about is the windows terminal server logon (be it ICA or RDP) then you need to set a policy on your (terminal) servers:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
DontDisplayLastUserName = 1 (REG_DWORD)

no no, its actually the tsc connection bit, its stores a prefix of cluster\username. the way i've got arround it is to save the username of "TYPE USERNAME HERE" clunky, but it works.

prospecthospice; a little late maybe, but you can also open the .RDP file in notepad and add the line "enablecredsspsupport:i:0" (without quotes) at the bottem of the file.
Authentication will be done on the server.
