Re: Can you modify how Cygwin prepends domain name to username?
The plus character is the default separator for mkpasswd.
In the help for it (mkpasswd -h), you will see
-S,--separator char For -L use character char as domain\user
separator in username instead of the default '+'.
But how is that compatible with Win's USERNAME? ...
I even use Domain\User on my linux domain server! So that would
conflict, by default. When I login to linux from win, it logs in
as Domain\User. Not entirely right for a PDC but at least somewhat
consistent. Domain+User would be entirely broken.
Yes -- I have added '\' to my allowed userID set on linux
