  • Join Multiple Domains

    Does anyone know of a way to join XP Pro to multiple domains? I work on a few different networks with my laptop and would like to be able to log on from a dropdown list without disjoining and joining.
    Thanks in advance,
    Mark

    Nope, not possible. One trick I have used in the past is to install a virtual machine (such as vmware), and have one instance running for each domain.

    Another trick is to pre-authenticate to the IPC$ share on the server you want to connect to, perhaps using a script.

    It depends a bit on what you want to achieve.

      One method that is being used in schools here is to leave the laptop in a Workgroup and setup Pass-Through Authentications on the domains you want to connect to.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2

        join windows xp pro to multiple domains

        In order to join windows xp professional to multiple domain you have to establish trust relationship between the two or more domain.
        If you running a domain on sbs server the trust cannot be done because sbs does not support trust relationsip.

        Good luck

            Right, but that is still not the same as joining multiple domains. Otoh, the original poster was not quite clear on his requirements. It could well be that such an app is sufficient.

              if the multiple domains are random than establishing a trust isnt a good solution so this cant be done without third party software.

                dunno if this works or not but when a laptop joins a domain, but boots up with no NIC, will it still try to auth via the domain?

                Also if you have a user account on all the domains (same username and pass possibly?) then wouldn't logging in on the local machine still allow you access to whatever network shares your domain account has access to?
