How to join a computer to multiple domains?

By damien.lefevre ·

We have a user who need to log into our own company's domain as well as other external domain like university...

I read quickly that a computer can be part of one domain only.

Would anybody recommend a solution to this problem?

The solution.....

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to How to join a computer to ...

... either use more than one computer OR manually log off one domain and log on to the next domain each time the need for another domain arises.

Multiple domains connection

by Sylvain_L In reply to The solution.....

Though this is tedious and annoying, one option would be to create different profiles (see hardware profiles in your system's properties under Hardware)

You should be able to specify different settings for various environments, thus being allowed to chose when the computer starts, which to use

If you run a virtual desktop then you can join many domains.

If you were to run a virtual desktop you could have multiple desktops each joined to a different domain if you so choose. This is what I do. I can share data from my host workstation via the shared folder option.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

Thanks for the help

Thank you for your inputs guys.

It gets too complicated so we'll have to make some compromises.

It is not that complicated really, it just sounds like it.

When you are faced with something new and you do not know the in's and out's then it seams complicated but really it is'nt.
You can have the same operating system, but different name (such as XP2) of coarse and then you can have this connected to your other domain, or have many virtual computers running on the same machine, that way you can still be in contact with many domains as you so wish. If you have a spare computer you can set it up and see how it runs. :)

2-in-1 OR 3-in-1 Multi Domain Computers

by pshiakallis In reply to How to join a computer to ...

I have invented a multi-domain, HARDWARE-BASED computer that allows the simultaneous access and view of up to three (3) separate domains. Each hardware-based domain has its own motherboard/CPU, memory read/write devices i.e., hard drives and CD/RW, USB ports etc., including power supplies, using a single mid-tower computer case. A built-in unique KVM switch allows the use of a single keyboard/mouse or touch-pad and it can be configured with 2 or 3 LCD HD monitors or with only ONE. The user simply switches keyboard/mouse functions to the domain that he uses, leaving the other one or two domains inactive or on standby. Switching keyboard and mouse from one domain to the other takes only one second and there is no loss of data between switching domains. Price starts at $4,500 depending on the CPU size, memory and hard drive size/type.
below, is the link to my published patent application.

I can be contacted directly for any questions at 757-373-3257 or via email.
