Q: Login failure:unkown user name or bad password This thread is locked from future replies

My Laptop is running Windows 7 Pro. I have created a VPN Connection  to my workplace and saved the connection credentials for any user of the Laptop. This works fine, but when I try to login to the Domain I get the error: Login failure:unknown user name or bad password. This is after using the Switch user option and then using the Network connection option, this brings up the VPN Login window, I re-enter the VPN Login credentials, the macine connects to the VPN and then goes to a Welcome Screen and this is where I get the error message. With XP Pro this did not happen, the machine would connect to the VPN and then display a Domain Login window.

What am I doing wrong?



Hi Keith,
Your Windows 7 question is more complex than what is typically answered in the Microsoft Answers forums. It is better suited for the IT Pro audience on TechNet. Please post your question in theTechNet Windows 7 Networking Forum.
