Hi

I am upgrading our XP PC's to windows 7 Pro. We connect to a Windows Server 2003 Standard R2 Domain.


The server is set up to not show last logon name but this does not work on Windows 7 when we cntrl/alt/del we still get the last user and need to switch user.

Is there a way round this please?

Appreciate any help and comments

Thank tou

TD

- go into domain policies
- parameters > local policies
- find the entry "Interactive Logon: Hide last user..." and set it to activated

Thank you for your reply however, That is already set as I explained in my original question

(The server is set up to not show last logon name but this does not work on Windows 7 when we cntrl/alt/del we still get the last user and need to switch user.)

If already properly set on the server, you may want to check localy on the machine :

- Click the "Start" button on the taskbar, type "group policy" in the Search box and then press "Enter" to start the Group Policy Editor.

- Double-click the "Computer Configuration" folder to expand it on the left pane of the Local Group Policy Editor window that opens. In the same way, expand the following folders one below the other: "Windows Settings," "Security Settings," "Local Policies" and "Security Options."

- Check the "Interactive Logon: Hide last user..." settings, and verify it's not denying your main policy.

This works Dont know why it does dot follow the Domain Policy but when we upgrade to SBS 2011 in a few months Win 7 should behave better then hopefully.
