I tend to RDP around a number of different machines both at my office and remotely at various customers. Each time I connect to a destination, Windows presents me with a login dialog that remembers who I logged in as last time (without the password because I don't like having the system remember any passwords).
I've noticed the following pattern:
- The first time I get a remembered name it is presented as `domain\user`
- The next time I get a remembered name (same system) it is presented as `user@domain`
- Rinse & repeat
This doesn't hinder me at all - it's just one of those curious little things that I'd like to know why it works that way.
Can anyone offer an explanation?
Point of Clairification
The more I think of it, this only seems to happen when the "domain" is the target workstation (ie: not a real Windows domain).
