Windows requiring domain in login name?

I've got a user that suddenly needs to type in '' in the login box when logging into active directory through windows 2000.

The PC is part of the domain, and the correct domain is llisted in the 'login to' box. Is this a problem with the way her account is setup or something wrong with the pc.

If you have access to adsiedit and the ability to modify account attributes, make sure that the userPrincipalName on the user object is set to USERNAME@DOMAIN.

If it's not, it might be why the user is experiencing that problem.

Also, make sure that the DefaultDomainName in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon is set to the correct domain name. That is the value that sets the domain on the logon box, but it's not a bad idea to double check it anyway.

Response by poster: Thanks.

I just checked all those, and it's as you said it's supposed to be.

What happens when other users use this machine? What happens when the user uses other PC's?
