Unfortunately I have not known any work around on these to allow users to logon to multiple domains reason being is each users or computer joins a domain have their own unique SID's a security feature on NT. You could let your users have an access to multiple domain by creating a "trust" relationship between domain.

Hope this helps.

They can only login to one domain at a time. If Domain ?A? and Domain ?B? trust each other and the user has an account in Domain ?A? then the user can have access to resources in Domain ?B? as long as the user has the correct permissions to access those resources on Domain ?B?.

Hope this helps!

Logging on the same machine using any OS other than WinXp the answer is No. The same user can log into mult doms via different machines.
XP allows different users to log onto the same machine and task switch between users.
Trust relationships willonly allow a user from a diff. domain to log in to that domain if there is a trust relationship in place. For example: Machine in hooked into DomA and DomA has a trust relationship with DomB. A user from DomB can use the machine from DomA to log into DomB

I don't know the reason you want to login to multiple domain but this is possible if you want only to access files or manage file within one domain or the other just use the comand net use drive \\servername\drive ex. net use f: \\ntserver\app

or you can find the servername and map it to a drive.

Hope this help
