John, I think the only thing you are missing is the fact that I am very 
easily confused :-)  Of course you are correct.  I guess I just didn't 
think this one through carefully.  Your question cleared it all up for me.


John T Benedetto told me on 11/7/2005 10:16:
>>> If you have an add machine script and the user attempts to log in from a
>>> previously non-registered machine, does it automatically add that
>>> machine to the mix?
> But your answer here does not make sense to me; I thought the add 
> machine script was used, well, for adding machines to the domain.  You

> join the domain (My Computer/Properties/Computer Name/ then clicking 
> "Change" where it says "To rename this computer or join a domain, click 
> Change").
> A user CANNOT "attempt to log in from a previously non-registered 
> machine" because the option to log into that domain does not exist on 
> their login screen.
> Or am I missing something here?
