Reverting to local server name.

    We have a number of users connecting to Win 2003 EE SP1 servers. Via GPO we
    force the login screensaver to be displayed every 30 minutes.
    For a number of users, when they attempt to unlock their session the login
    domain has reverted back to the local server name instead of the domain name.

    Is there any way we can force all clients who log on to always default to
    the domain name, as this is causing problems.

    This only seems apparent with 2003 SP1, as we have a number of servers still
    running without SP1 that this doesn't happen on.

    Another strange thing that intermittently happens, is that when the server
    consoles timeout to the login screen, when unlocking them they also revert
    back to the local machine name, but this is greyed out and the username is
    replaced with domain\username.

    Any advice would be apprieciated.
