    Hello Windows gurus,

    Is there any way to display multiple domains and workgroups
    names when I log in?

    I mean, when I try to log in, Windows displays the following
    pop-up window on the screen:

    +==========================
    |
    | User name [ ]
    | Password [ ]
    | Domain [ ]
    |
    +==========================

    What I'd like to do is I'd like the Domain field to display
    multiple domain and workgroup names. To enable that, what do
    I have to do?

    Many thanks in advance,

    alea

    You don't do anything because this can't be done.

    >If you create multiple child domains under the same forest root domain,
    your login options will allow you to choose which domain to log onto.

    An example would be a forest root of nwtraders.msft - If you have child
    domains like namerica.nwtraders.msft, spacific.nwtraders.msft, and
    asia1.nwtraders.msft - each child domain will be an option as a domain to
    log onto in addition to nwtraders.msft.

    Hope this helps.

    Why not? When I log in I have 4 options in the domain box... 3 domains
    and the local machine.

    Read up on trust.

    Yes that is true, but if there were child domains or trust set up then he
    would already see them in his logon. Therefore, there is nothing that he can
    do to the client to display multiple domains.

  9. The thing is that it CAN be done ONLY if DOMAIN trusts exists.
    in Peer to Peer networking or evan in multiple domain structure without
    TRUSTS, it can not be done.
