Login screen defaults to terminal server name instead of domain

For a few terminal servers in our environment, the "Log on to" field is defaulting to the server's name instead of the domain, when users hit the login screen. How can I change this behavior?

There is a registry tweak, but perhaps an easier way is to head into Terminal Services Configuration, under 'Connections' right click the RDP-TCP connection in the right-hand pane, click 'Properties', then 'Logon Settings'. Simply change the bullet to 'Always use the following logon information' and enter your domain in the box. Leave the others blank and this should do the trick...

i had this very same question, and this solution does kinda work, but i've also noticed the behavior that some do it automatically, and some do not.  also the always prompt for password isnt' nice because as an admin i have a bunch of saved sessions and i have to type my password in everytime.  wish i had a good answer for you my question went unanswered.  are you by chance using vmware or anything?
