Server 2003 / Windows 7 Pro Domain Profiles Question
Posted on 2010-11-21
I'm looking for clarification regarding Windows 7 Pro & Server 2003 Active Directory Setup:
I first Setup and logged into Windows 7 Professional with same username and password that I will need to join the local office domain.
I THEN successfully joined office domain.
I logged into the computer with log in screen displaying:
After logging in with ComputerName\Username I reviewed the
System Properties>Advanced Settings>Computer Name Tab and it reads as:
Full ComputerName = CompuerName.domain.local
Domain = Domain.local
My questions are:
1. Since I logged into the computer as "ComputerName\UserName am I actually logged into the domain given the info I included above?
2. When the log in screen displays ComputerName\Username is this user & PC governed by the Domain Policies?
3. If I have the users log in with log in screen displaying ComputerName\UserName are there any known issues using Windows 7 Pro with a Server 2003 Active Directory Domain setup?
I can log out of ComputerName\UserName and then "Switch" Users to log in in as Domain\UserName successfully but I obviously have 2 different Profiles.
Any insight / info is appreciated.
