Domain field changes to local machine after re-login
Posted on 2012-09-18
Hi Windows Experts,
I got some issues with my customer's VM's right now (windows xp), when I tried to login using domain credential (username, password, domain), then after a few minutes and session timeouts the screensaver kicks in which I find normal, but when I try to re-login to input my domain credential the domain field changes to Local Machine instead of the domain.
Although users can still re-login by changing it back or choosing the right domain.
But is there any registry or group policy is taking effect on this? which part should i look for to find the root cause? And how do I force it to make it default to use the domain instead of local machine?
