Mac network login

I have a Mac connected to a network but can't get the "other user" account to pop up when u reboot or logout... I see it appear when I turn on the guest account and logout but it disappears after  few seconds ....I also tried manually setting the DNS and that was a no go ... I am able to ping the domain from Terminal. I have all the log in options set correctly but I just can't get that option does not populate to the screen.

as mentioned by apple support:
Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Users & Groups, then click Login Options. Click the lock icon to unlock it, then enter an administrator name and password. Select “Show fast user switching menu as,” then choose how the fast user switching menu looks in the menu bar

I set this option up after I joined the domain and it didn't work I even factory reset the MAC twice but this option doesn't work
It's usually better to set the login display as name and password for logging into a domain from a Mac.  How are you networked?  WiFi or ethernet?

I've done both wifi and ethernet
Have you set the login display to be user name and password?

Can you log in with a domain account?  Maybe you need to rejoin the domain.
