Symptom

You have more than one domain in your network and you need to set the default for logon

Cause

This is by design

Solution

To set the default domain on a server you need to change the registry.

- start regedit.exe
- go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
- Set the value of DefaultDomainName to the preferred domain

Now logon from the client to check your new settings.
