  • Workgroup or domain for remote user?

    Should a user who works one day a week at the office and the rest from home (from where he connects in to the office) be best set up to logon to a workgroup rather than a domain profile?

    I tend to opt for the latter which seems to work fine in the main but would be interested to hear views.

    Are you on about setting him up with a local or roaming profile?

        I think it's always better to have the machine on the domain to be honest; simply because if it is he won't have to authenticate twice to access domain resources such as shared files, printers etc.

              leave them in a workgroup.
              Although you can't remotely managing them, there are ways to gain the domain admin permissions when you're local admin.

              I cant find quickly an article about it and i cant remember the procedure, but Microsoft once demonstrated it on a security seminar.
