multiple domains with NT workstations

By bytj ·
My company has three domains Like Domain_A, Domain_B, and Domain_C running UNIX servers. I have problems with it for multiple clients. 20 clients are Windows NT/98/2000.
My problem is many of these 20 clients need to log on to different domains. For instance, Client_1 has the priviledge to access to Domain_A and Domain_B. Client_2 or Client_x has similar situations. Now if a client is logged into Domain_A, and then to Domain_B, and then back to Domain_A, the client's username and password is no longer valid for Domain_A. I wonder how this could happen and how I could resolve.

Your help is greatly appreciate.

Thanks a ton.

I think the "real" solution is to rethink client access across these domains. Since these various domains are all in one company, you should be able to setup a reasonable open level of "trusts" among them. Then your users can login to one domain, but access needed services in the others, without the added burden of switching between different domains.

Set up either a one-way or a complete trust between the NT and the WIN 2000 servers.Ensure you have WINS Servers running on the windows machines before setting up the trust, otherwise the trust will not work. If you don't know how to set up the trust, e-mail me and I will show you the details.If the 20 clients also log into the UNIX servers, then they will need Unix accounts also. The IP address and computer names of the windows machines should appear in /etc/hosts file of the Unix machines. You can install Samba on the Unix machines so that Windows users can access the Unix machines in Internet Explorer.
