Multiple Domain Logons

By mrigdon ·
We have an environment which contains a parent and child domain. One is our admin domain another our students. The issue is that we have students who need access to the admin domain because they work in those departments with resources in that domain on that Specific VLAN in our network. However, when they are not working they need access to our student domain with access to resources from a student domain computer with resources on that VLAN and domain such as printing from our library computers. How can this be accomplished so that we do not have to create multiple user accounts for each of those students and still protect the integrity of our network security

My personal opinion is that you should have one account with admin privileges and one account for everyday activities, but this is just a personal view of security.

As described in your question, 2 accounts are logical and makes sense. The other solution is to create one account and grant permissions as needed in each domain, but this may be complicated depending if that is a true child domain or a peer domain in a discontiguous DNS namespace.
