Windows 7 domain logon

#1
Here's a strange problem.

I have an active directory domain controller running Windows Server 2003 at home. I am dual booting Windows XP and Windows 7 on my desktop PC.

I joined Windows 7 to the domain without problems, but when I log off and try to log back on to the domain using my username and password, I get a 'username or password incorrect' error.

If I type my domain credentials as:

username@home.local

I can log on to the domain. Then I log off and the same error appears. So, I use the following logon:

home\username

and can log on to the domain again. Then I log off and the same error appears. I use this:

username@home.local

and log on to the domain again. I can never log on to the domain the same way twice.

I have no problems logging on as the domain administrator and have no problems logging on to the domain using Windows XP.

Strange.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Solution

Edit: Realized I wasn't solving the problem, just repeating someone above. Sorry

---

In case you haven't figured it out yet,
username: <domain>\<username>
password: <password>
replacing <domain> with your domain, <username> with your username, etc.

Took me a few minutes to remember...

I to encourtered the same issue, with regards to domain logins. from my knowledge the only way availiable to this day to log on to a domain well running Windows 7 is:

user@mydomain.local

or

mydomain\user

Possibly Microsoft will fix this as the O/S is still in a beta form, possibly it will become the traditional way of the drop menu, for the selection of local / domain logins.
