Disable the Doman Name

By maddiuex ·
I have users that upon logging on, sometimes changes the Domain Name. I would like to gray this option out. Autologon is not the answer since multiple users logon the same machines. I dont want to have to walk out and change the domain name three tofour times a day. example username, password, Domain name < - I want ths disabled on the Winlogon screen. any help would be great... Thanks

Try to run poledit.exe and disable access to "networking" for users.

To the poledit theory, I have config.pol setting custom, desktops, folders, etc. What I would like is to gray out the workgroup, domain name at the winlogon screen, if this is done through poledit, please explain how.. Thank you

I do not believe you can block this. What you CAN do is to use the feature of showing the user a message before login to remind the user to make sure he has the domain set correctly. There is also a registry setting on NT (I am not sure about 95), to change the caption on the login box.

Good luck.

I have the message box appearing reminding them, and no 95 does not have the srvcomment section in the winlogon, wish it did. I have searched everywhere for the answer, and with no luck. But in the past. I have seen that remarked out. I have also, thought of switching to windows logon, but the user just presses escape to bypass that. Thank you for responding, excellant idea!
