Windows 7: Multiple Logon Icons in a Domain connected Windows 7

Multiple Logon Icons in a Domain connected Windows 7


I have a Windows Server 2008 Native Domain to which all my Windows 7 Ultimate (32 and 64bits) machines are connected.
On the Win 7 machines, when we press CTRL+ALT+DEL, we have a large icon representing the last person who logged on. But some of these machines are shared among 3 users and I would love to be able to display all 3 logon icons instead of just the last one.
If I install Windows 7 on a Virtual Machine and NOT on a domain but rather in a workgroup, then just adding new local users automatically makes their login icons appears. But it doesn't seem to work as soon as I'm connected to a domain and want to add just 3 domain accounts.

Any help ?

Thanks in advance

When adding windows 7 to a domain it no longer allows you to use the icons to log in. as you have noticed, you are required to type the domain and user name in for each user. This is for added protection to prevent anyone seeing what domains the computer are connected to.

From my understanding there is no way to change this at this time.

Domain logon
I was wondering if its possible to stop using the 'slash' style logon, logoff and lock workstations screens when connected to a corporate domain, in similar style to how NT and W2K worked. If I recall correctly, in XP if its a member of the domain it reverts to this method and does away with the...
