Logon Domain Issue

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Marco Fish, May 3, 2009.

    Background:
    The Windows XP workstations in my office have been set up and are able to
    access different domains of my company. On the logon screen, such registered
    domains and the local one are available for selection in the "Domain" field
    of the logon screen.

    My question:
    If I wish to limit the "Domain" selection list to a particular domain, how
    can I do so? In doing this, I also wish not to delete other regstered
    domains so that I will not need to register again when I decide to return to
    the original setting.

    For example, there are "work domain A", "Work domain B", and "Local"
    available for selection in the current setting, if I just want to restrict
    such selection to "Work domain B" but without delete other domains, how can I
    do so?

    If you have a trust set up this is the way it is. Control access to domain
    resources with NTFS security. I'm not sure you can stop the users from
    logging into the other domains....but you should post in
    m.p.windows.server.active_directory, as this is not a 64-bit Windows issue.

    I think I posted the question to a wrong place and I've put this question to
    the "Windows XP Accessibility" forum.

    Thank you for your time!

    Amazing. Lanwench told you the right group to post into, so you post into
    one related to use by disabled users instead.

    I am new to this forum and already got to a wrong place at the start.
    I was unable to locate the group suggested by Lanwench before and it is fine
    now after reading your advice.
    Thank you for your comment.

    Glad you found it (and yes, some of the names can be misleading). Note that
    this isn't really a forum, it's a newsgroup
    It's a lot easier to access these if you use a news client, such as Forte
    Agent, Thunderbird, or even Outlook Express, rather than the pretty clunky
    web interface. It's a lot easier to do nearly everything that way. You can
    mark messages to be watched, filter the views so you can see replies to your
    posts easily, and search.

    The Microsoft public news server is msnews.microsoft.com and you can
    subscribe to as many groups as you like; no authentication is required.
