Mixd_Mike is on a distinguished road

We are on a shared network with macs and PCs all connected. It is set up so any user can log on to any machine and use it. However, on one Mac, at the log-in screen all I can see is 'Administrator' or '(My Account)'. On all other machines there is also an option to log on as another user (ie, three options on the login screen) but on this one only the two.

I have tried looking in System Preferences but there is nothing there (that I Can see) to allow me to set the log-in screen to show the function to log in as another user.

Anyone have any ideas?

(Running 10.7.4 BTW)

Are the users account names on a server, either Active Directory or Open Directory?

You can try this: Look in Accounts, Login options. Change it to "Name and Password" from "List of Users".
Then just type in your name and password to log in.
