Hiding domain dropdown after forest trust is created


J

jt

Have made 1 way to between forests so admin in F1 can
logon to F2. I have blocked so the users can't logon to
F2 but they can still see F2 in the dropdown. Does
anyone know how to hide the dropdown menu from a trusted
forest from all but admin accounts.

Brian is incorrect. The domain dropdown can be hidden, which requires users
to login using username@domain syntax.

It is possible to disable the domain option on the dialog box brought up by
WlxLoggedOutSas. To do this, set the registry value NoDomainUI of type
[Reg_Dword] to a value of 1. This would have users enter their user names in
the form-for example, username@domain.

Unfortunately, I don't know where this reg key lives and it is not specified
in the whitepaper from which I took that quote. Try
HKLM\\Software\\WindowsNT\\CurrentVersion\\Winlogon\\Userinit or somewhere
around there. If you do figure it out, please let us know for future
reference.

Do you have a KB for this?

Not anymore. I copied that section from a whitepaper on the functions of
msgina.dll. I can't seem to find it again quickly -- you might have better
luck (or probably more persistence) than I.

MadDHatteR, thanks mate!
that registry key worke like a charm!

Just create it here:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
[DWORD] NoDomainUI = 1

I applied it on my Win2003S Terminal Server.

Cheers
