In various networks I have used the same unattend.txt file which
explains why I've had similar problems on different networks.

When a user logs in to the network with SLP and LDAP configured for
contextless logins, we get some weird behavior.

Say we enter in a username and then attempt to enter a password. But
then we change our mind on the user...we want to login as "admin"
instead of "jdoe"...so we go back to the login name and enter in the
information and navigate to the password field....the workstation
reboots unexpectedly.

We don't have XP (SP1 or SP2) auto-restart after BSOD's so we can tell
it's not BSOD'ing at all. No real errors in the event log after a
restart either.

I don't understand exactly why it's happening because I've seen
varying posts on it - one of which saying it was that LDAP might not
be setup 100% correctly. Yet when I use different unattend.txt
settings the client stops this bad behavior.

I have my unattend.txt settings and the new one another tech in my
company provided. If I image 2 PC's so they are identical, his simply
works better. Mine will reboot the PC as explained above. With his,
it NEVER happens.

Here's the copy and paste with certain information removed (more like
bogus names added). My point is...what setting (absent or present)
might cause this? The second file definitely has more settings...just
wondering what I can do in the future to possibly prevent this
rebooting thing when making a new unattend.txt file, for instance.

Any questions, feel free to ask. Else I'll try to eventually find it
by trial and error...maybe :P
