Is there a way to hardcode a particular username in the Logon Dialog Box for Win 2K? We're running Novell Frontend Client on Win 2K. Generally, the last username will be displayed in the Welcome screen logon, both for Novell Frontend as well as Windows Logon Dialog box. If the user's password is synchronized, then one password will take the user directly to the desktop. However, somehow the Windows Logon Dialog box always displayed with 'Administrator' as the username, hence, causes the user to always have to re-enter his username and password. Any idea as to how this 'Administrator' username is being set and/or how to remove it to allow the last username to display? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

1 – Windows is very good about remembering the last thing it did correctly. And at ignoring the competition (Novell).

2 – You did not say – Are they having to switch from local machine back to Domain in the logon box? If so it is patching / updates that cause the switch to ‘local’ administrator. If it is ‘DOMAIN’ you have a login script exerting privileges for the ‘Domain Administraotr’ as opposed to running as the ‘system’ account.

3 – Hope this points you in the right direction.

    You can set this up in the registry: Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsNTCurrentVersionWinlogon; Enter your domain name and account name using the following values : DefaultDomainName, DefaultUserName as string values. You can also configure this for auto logon by adding an AutoAdminLogin dword key and setting the value to 1. This requires you add a DefaultPassword string key also.I don't think autologin would work properly if the Novell client is the logon client also.
