NT Domain Login Screen With WindowsXP

By mansari2 ·
We recently purchased some computers with WindowsXP Professional Edition. We are on an NT Domain and our server runs Windows NT 4.0. When setting up the new computers we cannot get them to boot up to a Network Login Screen as the Windows98 SE computers do. I have been all over XP and cannot find any place to select to logon to NT domain like you can by going to the properties of Network Neighborhood in Windows 98 SE. If I look at the properties of Client for Microsoft Network I do not get the Logon to NT Domain option. I can boot to XP and locate my network and when I try to access one of the drives it will then ask me for my user name and password....but we want it to prompt you for it on boot. I tried going through My Computer/ Properties/ Computer Name Change and Selected Domain with User Name and Password but still could get in as gives an error message ?Access is Denied.?

First right-click on My Computer and click properities. Under computer name tab click change and add to domain.

Then go to the user accounts icon in the control panel. Click the advanced tab and at the bottom is a check box to press ctrl+alt+delto logon.

I hope this is what you are looking for. comment back if not and I will try to help further.

Thanks darts32 for your response to my question. I have already tried to add the domain in the Change section. For some reason everytime I try to add a domain it comes up with the error message "The following error occured attempting to join the domain "CDM". Access is denied.
I also tried your advise to go to the user accounts icon in the Control Panel. I could not find an Advance tab in that section. FYI, I am on an NT 4 Domain and the OS is Windows XP Professional. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I am not in front of an XP box right now, so I can't find how to get to this option.
You need to disable the "Fast User Switching" to get the logon box. Go to the Control Panel, select the Users applet, and look in there.

Even if you turn off fast user switching you will not be logging into the domain. The access denied can occur for a few reasons. Either you don't have the rights to join a computer, which if you are the admin I am guessing you do, or the this computer name already exists in the domain. If it does delete the computer account and try adding it to the domain. Feel free to let me know if you have more questions.

This will happen if NetBIOS is disabled on the clients.

1. From the Start menu, select Settings, and click Network and Dial-up Connection.
2. Right-click Local Area Connection, and select Properties from the context menu.
3. Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and click Properties.
4. Click Advanced, and select the WINS tab.
5. Click "Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP."
6. Click OK, and ignore the WINS error.
7. Click OK to close all dialog boxes.
