Multiple Domain Membership

By bkubai ·
I have recently "upgraded" to Windows NT Workstation from Windows 95. With Win95 I could seemlessly move from one domain to another by changing the domain name. How can I do this with NT Workstation so that I have a choice of two or more domains at login? What information is lost if I change domains via the Network Neighbourhood every time I move?

You can change your domain via the Network Neighborhood Icon on the Control Panel or on the Desktop. Under the Identification Tab, you change to the new domain you want.

If you are a defined client/user on the new domain you want to participate, it should give you a welcome message.

If you have the same profiles create on all the domains you are participating, then nothing is lost. Depending on whether or not certain Users or System Policies are implemented across all domains, then movingfrom one domain to another should be transparent.

Hope this helps and give you more insight!

I can't exactly tell what your situation is by your post (home, work, lab). FYI a trust relationship between two Domains will allow access to resources from both with a single login.

If you join each of the domains you would like to be a part of via Network Neighborhood and leave your primary Domain setup. (This will create computer account in the domains in which you join) You should on reboot have a drop down box that will allow you to select any domain that you have previously joined.
FYI. Microsoft says this doesn't work however I have never had a problem doing this. I have done this in four different environments without a problem.

If you opt to change domains every time a new profile will be created for you on your PC. The easiest solution is have the network admin setup a trust relationship between the two domains and assign your account the necessary privelages to resources that you need.
