    unusual change in domain logon behavior

    Greetings,

    I have rolled out my latest tested image to a couple of our IT rooms however im experiencing an odd change when it comes to logging onto the domain.

    Normally at the ctrl+alt+delete screen i get the usual username/password boxes, however since re-imaging these machines in instead get presented with an icon saying other user which i have to click to then get to the usual username/password logon screen.

    Now I had tested this image before I deployed it and it worked as expected so im a little confused as to how it has changed. Any ideas as to why i am seeing this change and how to force it back to the proper login screen?

    Thanks
    James

    This is usually a group policy setting rather than a setting in the image. Are your new computers in an OU that is picking up the same policies as your other computers?

    In case you need to set up a new policy, here is a guide:

    Thanks for replying. I already had this setup in the default domain policy. All the other clients i have yet to image still logon correctly. Its just the newly imaged clients that display the wrong logon. Its not quite the same problem, i get a blue screen with just the icon to click on, no password box, i then have to click that icon before i can do anything else. Funny thing is i just remoted to it from home and its now working as expected but i guarantee you it wasnt working earlier. Its happened on every machine ive imaged today, seems an intermittent problem.

    Do you have netop vision installed?
    We recently had this. It went away after one login.

    I don't have netop but I do have netsupport school which is similar I believe and I do happen to have installed it on all the problem clients. I did try to reboot them a couple of times and it didn't go away but now I've heard this I'll try to rule it out. Thanks for your help :-)

    Have you moved the computers out of the computers container in ad?

    No worries.
    For us it happened when we logged in every student machine at once using the teacher vision application.
    Rebooting doesn't help but it goes away only when you physically log in at the keyboard. After that it was fine.

    HI

    I know this will be a silly question but have you knocked the machine off the domain and put it back on.

    Have you done a rsop.msc and does any errors show up?

    Have you checked the event log?

    If the machine has a gig network card you might have to put a registry setting in for the computer to wait for the domain. Sometimes machines boot too fast and dont pick up group policy.

    Hi

    Have a look here for the details of the delay setting.

    Windows 7 Clients intermittently fail to apply group policy at startup

    Hi All,

    Thanks for your replies. Can confirm @burgemaster was correct, after a normal login and a restart all was back to normal on the affected clients. Thanks again for everyones help
