LKBEN10923: Howto set the default domain when you log on


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


This is by design


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.
