I came across this today at a client site and it baffled me. I have not seen this option before when creating a wireless policy in Group Policy.
The only options this policy allowed me was;
- User re-authentication (I am not familiar with this option)
- User authentication
- Computer authentication
What I am used to seeing is this;
The options I am used to seeing are;
- User or Computer Authentication
- Computer Authentication
- User Authentication
- Guest Authentication
Can anyone point out why the differences between two Windows 2008 R2 servers?
I have been using "User or Computer Authentication" in the past and it has worked. Without that option will user auth fail if I choose only computer auth?

I was under the impression that user "re-authentication" is the same as user or computer auth. It should auth as the computer at the logon screen, and then re-auth as the user on login.
I have seen this in some MS documentation as well (the images/terminology) yet I have not been able to see it in my GPO settings (win2008 R2/win7,etc...)
EDIT: on second thought I bet this has to do with AD levels - we have a win2003 server still in our AD environment... I am wondering if the new GPO only shows with the higher AD level?
