Windows 7 prefer local login on domain workstation
Posted on 2012-09-17
We have a couple of workstations that are used with domain accounts but also should be able to login with a local account (user, no admin privileges). The login has to be made as easy as possible.
I am wondering if their is any way to set up Windows 7 to automatically prefer the local user accounts.
If the computer has a local account called administrator and you type the username in it will automatically switch to the local machine instead of the domain account administrator. So if someone wants to login with localuser, the machine is set to login to the domain it should be possible to login without writing hostname\localuser.
I hope this explains the need.
Any help is highly appreciated.
