Preferred Solution: Windows 10 Domain Joined - How to disable pin sign on.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

I am using a domain-joined laptop with Windows 7 Professional at work. Now I am trying to integrate it into my home network (which consists mainly of a Windows XP Professional SP3 desktop).
After enabling a guest account and sharing on the WinXP machine, I am able to access shared folders on the WinXP desktop from the Win7 laptop (which is not too bad).

However, I was not able to access shared folders on the Win7 laptop from the WinXP PC, not even after enabling all advanced sharing features and disabling the firewall. Both using the computer name \\HAL and the IP address \\192.168.0.100 gives me a "Windows cannot find..." error. Pinging the Win7 laptop works though.

I wouldn't like to leave the domain to join the local workgroup and am not desperate enough for a dual boot installation or other major work-arounds I have come across (especially since sharing the other way around works). But maybe some of you guys have a suggestion what else I could try.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Hi

I recently joined my HP Envy Recline 27 k210na which was upgraded to windows 10 to a Windows 2012 R2 Domain. But have an issue.

Once I login with a user account, domain or non domain, I am unable to use the fast user switching. When choosing to switch account, I will be taken to the login screen, and when I select 'Other' to login with another account, it takes me to the existing user's password entry screen.

If I sign out, and select 'Other' to login as a different user, I get the same issue. I have to reboot the machine to be able to login with another user account.

I restored the pc to factory defaults and upgraded again, then rejoined the domain, but the problem is still there.

Please help

A:Domain Joined Windows 10 - Fast User Switching

When signing in to a Windows PC which has joined a domain with other than a domain account, you need to use a so called full username (ComputerName\UserProfileName).


In above screenshot example I simply replaced the default domain username with the credentials of a local account using the full username and can now sign in using those credentials.

Clicking the link How do I sign in to another domain shows these instructions:

Hi,

I get a do not have permission message, I tried adding the domain\user to share permissions but domain is not recognized on the non domain-joined pc.

A:Domain joined pc, does domain admin have access to my homegroup

Hi Takatso, welcome to sevenforums. As I read you post, it looks like you are logged into your domain joined PC as a domain user is this correct? If so, your PC will be treated as acting as a part of the domain. If you then try and connect to another pc at home, there will be a problem as your home pc is not recognised by the domain pc as part of the domain. You should set yourself up a user account on the domain pc whilst it is NOT connected to the domain, login to the new account whilst not on the domain and then try sharing the folders with the non-domain pc.

No, your does not have access on the home computer as they are part of the domain and not the homegroup.

hello,

After I joined a domain , I lost my wall paper, desktop settings ,IE favorites ,etc...

I guess that would be considered my profile that was lost ?

Is there a way to copy my old profile to my new one

or a way to get my old settings back ? and stay on the domain of course.

Windows XP is my OS

thanks
 

A:joined a domain

All user settings are in folders under "C:\Documents and settings\user name". Your domain user name will be your name with the domain postfixed to it (divided by a period). For example, NAME.DOMAIN

If you know your old username, you should be able to just copy all the files and folders from under "C:\Documents and settings\Old Name" directly into "Documents and settings\New Name".

It would probably be a good idea to backup the current folder of the new name first just in case also.

I'm having the same 'issue'. I've been told to try and find a way to have the computer boot to the login screen and display a specific user name, not necessarily the last user name to log in. For some reason(s), the extra clicks it takes to switch users or leaving the default account blank is not acceptable, so I'm also trying to find a way to do what vao wants to do. Any ideas? Someone tried the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI
LastLoggedOnSAMUser = Computername\username (or domainname\username for a domain account)
LastLoggedOnUser = .\username (or domainname\username for a domain account), but apparently it didn't work.

I'm going to give it a shot of mine own just because, but any other ideas?

Thanks

A:I'm in the same spot, but I am joined to a domain.

When Windows boots normally to the login screen it shows the available user accounts in alphanumerical order according to the respective user profile's original name. A later username change does not change this order, to change it you have to rename not only your username but also the user profile folder. Only renaming the user account still keeps the original user profile folder. In Windows 7 for example old username Alex changed to Xavier, user Xavier would still have his user profile in C:\Users\Alex.

Available user accounts are presented (Windows 7) in one (1 to 5 accounts) or more (6 or more accounts) rows. Windows defaults to the left most (top left when 6 or more accounts) user account, in other words the first in alphanumerical order. In Windows XP the accounts are presented in one column, defalting to the top most account.

This should be considered when you install Windows. If it is important that Windows always pre-selects (defaults to) a certain account, you need to give it a name which certainly remains alphanumerically first. I recommend using numbers in addition to names.

An example: Your goal is to have 1 administrative user, account name Admin, and 2 standard users named Bubba and Charlie. By default Windows 7 would show these accounts in alphabetical order, Admin, Bubba, Charlie. However, you'd like accounts to be shown as Charlie, Admin, Bubba, showing the account Charlie first and defaulting to it.

The first account you create when finalizing Windows 7... Read more

Hi,

A bit of an odd one this - all of a sudden, as many as 30 computers have suddenly had credentials problems and are failing Group Policy processing as a result. What I mean by this is that they are throwing errors in Event Viewer such as "Unable to resolve
hostname", and the only solution is to open the Stored Names and Passwords manager under the SYSTEM account via PSEXEC and binning off the credentials for the domain controller.
The only leads I could find on this referred to expiring Kerberos tickets, although the setup at this site (I believe) has the default Kerberos policies set under Default Domain Policy. I have checked, and other sites with the exact same policy setup do
not have this issue, so I am reluctant to believe it is the Kerberos policy.
Any other ideas or leads would be appreciated, I'll be happy to expand on this question if any more details are necessary.
Cheers,

Hello all,

I've just spent the last day and a half reading forums, but no-one seems to have had the same problem as I have.

We've just bought a new vista business x64 machine to add to our existing network. All the other machines are running xp pro sp2. I've added the vista machine to the domain and logged in using my domain id. In the 'Network' folder I can see all the other machine names. So far, so good.

If I try and access one, however, I get one of two things:
1. A dialog asking for username and password. It doesn't accept anything I type in.
2. An error message saying the account is locked.

I can ping any of the xp machines, by name or ip and get a response ok.

Trying to access in the other direction, all is fine. From an xp machine, I can access any folder on the vista machine, make changes, everything. I've installed LLTD on one of the xp machines, so it appears on the full map thing, otherwise it has made no difference.

All folders have been set to 'Everyone full access'.

Any ideas?

Domain Controller, DNS, DHCP Server (on same instance) is Server 2012 standard
The network topology is like this: Router as Internet Gateway>Switch>Wired to Server and PC's, SIP phones, and Wireless Access Point all on same subnet. DNS and DHCP have been offloaded to Server Roles and switched off on the router.

Some of them have always picked up the domain network and continue to this day.
Some of them intermittently pick up the domain network and other times join whatever other unmanaged network is available.

A:Displaying number sign while I entering backslash("\") to logon to windows 7 for another domain.Anyone have any idea?

I got the correct answer from the VMWare workstation forum.If anyone facing the same problem please try the following details,

In your Windows 7 , it seems that your welcome screen is using a different keyboard layout.

To fix this ,

In your control panel , go to : Regional and language - > Administrative

click on Copy Settings




 

Check the Welcome screen and system accounts , you can also check the New
user accounts .

Click OK and restart .

HELP please if you can.

I just signed up with officelive.com and purchased a domain name.

Because I was new to this, I inadvertently chose a ".com" instead of a ".org" that I initially had in mind.

I already paid the $14.95. They do not have a support number to call.

From doing a little reading, I think I have to purchase another domain name using the ".org".

If I cancel the original domain name, will they still take my $14.95, or merely transfer that payment to the new domain name, does anyone know please?

I know I made a huge mistake but I can't see paying $14.95 TWICE for the same domain name, only one with .com and one with .org.

THANK YOU.

A previous GPO tech set these to be disabled by default and I can't figure out how to re-enable. The options stay greyed out no matter what I try. I don't want to remove the settings to disable from the default policy so I have created an additional GPO for certain PCs to have it enabled and I'm just trying to find all of the settings to get this working again for the approved users.

This is what I have set currently...
In Computer -> Policies -> Admin Templates:
System/Logon -> Turn on PIN sign-in = Enabled
Windows Components/Biometrics -> Allow domain users to log on using biometrics = Enabled
Windows Components/Biometrics -> Allow users to log on using biometrics = Enabled
Windows Components/Biometrics -> Allow the use of biometrics = Enabled
Windows Components/Microsoft Passport for Work -> Use biometrics = Enabled
Windows Components/Microsoft Passport for Work -> Use Microsoft Passport for Work = Enabled

Any suggestions are most welcome

Thanks

School is starting, so I was asked to get a laptop from the school. I tried to sign into the credentials the school gave me at home, but it said my domain isn't available. here is the message word for word.
"We cant sign in with this credential because your domain isn't available. make sure your device is connected to your organizations network and try again. if you previously signed in on this device with another credential, you can sign in with that
credential."
I am stuck here and have no where to go. I would be greatly appreciated if you guys can help me out.
Thanks, Carlos

I have my account linked to a Microsoft account so it checks online every time I enter the password. This is good, except when I'm off WiFi. Sometimes, it lets me know I'm offline and says to use the last password. I so and it gets me on. But sometimes it just sits there saying "Welcome". I end up having to force restart it. Is there anyway to keep it linked to my Microsoft account, but disable the online password check?
