Giulio, hi!

Thank you for your reply. I've already had set this up in the policy.
That works fine as long as the user uses a valid domain-name. In cases
the user types in a nonexisting domain-name (e.g. zzashgsvy), he is
always able to login the computer without using a valid user/passwd
pair. He doesn't have network access then, but he is able to use

Any ideas?
