    I dont think a mahcine can be part of two domains. The only way is establish a trust between the two domains:

      Quite correct.

      A machine may only be a member of one domain at a time.

      When logging on to a machine, in the list of domains, you will see the domain that the machine is a member of in addition to any trusted domains. So in order to list multiple domains in the drop down box at the logon screen, you must establish at a minimum a one way trust with the domain you want to see listed in the dropdown box. The domain you want listed in the dropdown box must be the trusted domain, not the trustingdomain.

      In active directory, domains in a forest have built in two-way transitive trusts by nature so you should automatically see other same-forest domain as an option in the domain dropdown box on the logon screen.

      When dealing with other forests, you will need to establish an external trust, shortcut trust, or forest trust.

      When dealing with NT4 domains, you will need to establish and external trust.
