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

I don't know if this will help.But you have to go to every computer.Right click network neighborhood to get to properties then click on client for microsoft networks. Click on properties,Uncheck the box for logon validation but make sure the correctdomain is written there. When the user logs on he will no longer see the domain.

I'am afraid but don't think that you can acomplish that easily...
But I can provide you some ideas that will turn your users NOT to change it, or better, check for the right value.

Idea 1.- Network profiles + roaming: Set up a network profile (in your server) and move every desktop icons to a roaming profile. If the users attempt to log localy al win9X, they will simply see nothing!, or better change the background screen, create a custom one, telling the user that he don't check the correct domain validation, so he will need to reboot NOW it's machine in order to get HIS desktop. This is UNBEATABLE an extremly simple to accomplish

2.- In order to keep this running you will need to setup a local profile to avoid THOSE users from modifying anything.

Hope it helps !!!
