This article describes how to change the default domain that is used by the Routing and Remote Access service or by Internet Authentication Service (IAS) to authenticate users.

Mostly, users log on to computers that are running Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows Server 2003 by using a dial-up connection or by using a virtual private network (VPN) connection. Users use a user name, a password, and a domain name when they log on. Windows 2000-based computers and Windows Server 2003-based computers that run Routing and Remote Access or IAS may not be able to authenticate users if they omit one or more of these credentials. By default, if a user does not specify a domain name, Routing and Remote Access and IAS try to authenticate user accounts against the domain that the server belongs to.

Warning If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

You can change the default domain by modifying a registry key on the server that is running Routing and Remote Access or IAS. To do so, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type
    regedit, and then click OK.
  3. Locate and then click the following registry key:
  4. In the right pane, right-click the
    DefaultDomain registry key, and then click
  5. In the Value data box, type
    RRAS or IAS, and then click
Note By default, Routing and Remote Access or IAS can authenticate local user accounts on the server where they run. To turn on this authentication, follow these steps, but in step 5, type the computer name for the server that is running Routing and Remote Access or IAS instead of RRAS or IAS.
