  • Workplacement Staff

    Up until recently we were using Novell as our server OS and so any work placements that came in, usually with their own laptop, and were members of their educational institution domain just had the Novell client installed alongside and then had access to the relevant resources.

    We have recently migrated to a new file server running Windows 2003 and set up our own domain to which all the PCs have joined.

    My question is this:

    When we get work placements in now do we have to unjoin them from their original domain and then join to ours or can they be members of more than one domain. For obvious reasons the domains in question never have visibility of each other.

    In AD, a computer object can be part of only one security boundary (forest), hence you will have to unjoin the new computers from their old domain and join to your AD domain.

      Just a thought but i have seen computers before that have multiple domains to log into when pressing CTRL ALT + DEL. Is this pointing to a way of doing it?

        are those not just domains that are in the same forest and/or have a trust set-up?

            I think it is

            In my last job when we migrated from NT to 2003 we could log onto either domain. We created a new domain and migrated accounts rahter than upgrading the domain.
