Windows Domain Trust - Can the domain list be suppressed?

Hello,

After setting up a Windows Trust, all PC's and servers show the name of the trusted domain in the domain LOG ON TO drop down list.  

Is there any way to SUPPRESS this, and only show the domain that the PC / Server is a member of?  Or do you need to accept listing all of the domains?

Hi

Yes, there is a way force no drop-down list, but it is better to use GPO to force default domain for logon:

If you want to force 'no drop-down list', you can use the following regedit, but be aware that users will have to use the full UPN to logon:

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Create a new DWORD of NoDomainUI
Set the value of this DWORD to 1
Reboot the machine.

This can be pushed out via GPO.

Default domain is a better way, I agree....although UPN is great when we implement the EMAIL ADDRESS as the UPN (users never forget that, but it's rarely the windows domain name...).

Thanks for the help!
