    multiple domain profiles

    I have no clue how this is done but I saw it on computer I was working on and I'm very curious to see how it was done. The laptop that I was working on was configured to logon to multiple domains. I believe it listed 3 different domains in the domain list of the logon page. I'm thinking that you must make a registry edit. Not too sure but would love to figure this out.


    Thanks alot,


    Chris

    You just connect to and join each domain individually, the setting are saved for each domain you join. I am new to active directory so there may be a way to join a PC to multiple domains through apolicy but I doubt it.

    /edit: It looks like multiple domains are stored in the winlogon.domaincache key but I would guess just adding one there wouldn't authenticate and install proper objects necessary to authenticate the additional domain. You would have to physically join each one with proper credentials. /

    I actually figured out how to do it.

    Multiple Domain List

    Go into Registry

    HLKM/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/Winlogon

    and add a REG_SZ value


    ex: DOMAINNAME REG_SZ DOMAINNAME.COM

    This is helpful for consultants who connect to various domains.
