Administrator account gets second logon prompt RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I administer a WS2003 Terminal Server.  I just noticed that if I log on the local machine (not the domain) as the "Administrator", after I successfully log on, I get a second logon prompt for another user's account.  I can cancel out of it if I want and get the administrator's account.  This does not happen with standard user's accounts.

    Any idea how and why I am getting a second logon prompt for this user's account?

    Many thanks,

  • Figured it out: one of the users with administrators permission logged into the administrator's account and decided to mount file shares from the server.  But, since I deliberately do not allow the Administrator to automatically mount shares, he mounted four shares under his username and told Windows to remember them.  The double logon was seeking his password to remount the shares.  It also triggered the netlogon script to run that is only meant for domain logons and not local logons, so I had to hand fix the registry redirects.
