Default Domain Name in RDP User Login

In an RDP thin client environment our users are logging on through a cluster (NLB).  When they attempt to logon they have to manually type the domain name \ user name.  How do I keep the users from having to type the domain name.  I want them to simply type their user name and password.

On your server, set the registry key for Default Domain = your domain.

Look in:
HKLM\software\microsoft\windows NT\Currentversion\Winlogon

There are three entries you can set (AltDefaultDomainName; DefaultDomainName; and CachePrimaryDomain), they will be reset if an admin logs on to the server with a local account. But manually setting these and logging out will keep it for your users.
