Windows NT Workstation logon to NT only

By louie ·
I have this problem. There are a number of workstations that when logging on they only get two lines. Not the regular three. They only get username and password when they should have username, password and domain. They are missing the domain and I do not know why. They do a reboot and the domain line shows up again most of the time. I have removed these workstations from the domain and readded them and the same workstations are still doing this. These workstations are running Windows NT 4.0 SP5. We are running a token ring segment and ethernet segment for our network. Our servers mainly reside on the ethernet side and I think that these workstations reside on token ring side. Just giving all the information that I can and any help would begreat.

The most common causes are network connection issues. Check the cables, connections, MAU or HUB, NIC, Drivers, etc.

Hope this helps

This may or may not apply, but check if dial up networking is installed. I've seen in win 98 and some others where the ppp adapter is the first one chosen and not the nic card. With the ppp/dialup adapter comes up, no domain is specified so no login choice for domain is available, if you hit log off and log on as different user, the nic card then comes up and domain login occurs. Not sure why but it does happen.

I would remove the NIC driver and reinstall it, even with a newer version, if available.

I don't know how you removed the workstations from the domain, but I'm going to assume that you used Server Manager for Domains. Here's what I would suggest: Remove each of the machines from the domain again using Server Manager. The go to each machine, and in the Network settings, put each machine into a Workgroup. Any workgroup name is fine...just so they are no longer part of the domain. Click OK however many times and let each workstation reboot. Then go back to each workstation and put them back into the domain, but check the box to create a computer account on the domain and let the accounts get created that way. Then reboot again and see what happens. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

it looks like these workstations are not part of a domain and is up for a workgroup.
if you check network setting and is set for a domain then replace you NIC.
