Ctrl+Alt+Del missing from Windows 8 Domain member
Posted on 2012-09-20
I am running Windows 8 Enterprise 64 bit. (RTM not a preview)
It is joined to a 2008 R2 Domain.
The Functional level of the domain is 2008 R2.
There have been no domain changes or GPO changes.
This is a new install of Windows 8.
Yes I can replicate the problem on other Windows 8 machines and VM.
The problem does not occur on any other Windows OS, just on 8.
When the computer boots to Windows 8, or the user returns from a Lock or Log Off, they are not prompted with the Ctrl+alt+del requirement. They simply click any key or the mouse button and they are prompted for password. This is only common to Windows 8 computers. All XP, 2003, 7, Vista, 2008, etc. systems on the domain require the Crt+alt+del key press.
In my research there is the ability to disable the ctrl+alt+del but no option to require it. (possibly setting the GPO to disabled rather than not defined, but why would that matter?) This is not the case in my domain, this GPO is set to not defined and all other flavors of Windows require the key press as expected. In my reading, any domain member, including Windows 8 systems, should require the key press out of the box. I should not have to change anything, just the fact it is a domain member should require this.
Anyone else see this behavior?
Any ideas on how to force the ctrl+alt+del on a Windows 8 Enterprise Domain member system?
This needs to be a domain wide solution, not a local edit.
