Selectively be a member of a Domain or Workgroup
Posted on 2004-04-24
I just recently received a laptop from my office as a bonus, I've set it up to connect to the domain at the office, so I could do my work on it. I then brought it home, so I could move some files around, however when I logged on to it as not a member of the domain, it took a long time to start and I noticed services giving errors in the event log that it couldn't find my domain controller. Also, I couldn't access my houses workgroup computers.
How would I selectively choose to be on a domain/workgroup on the fly without having to reboot the computer, or having it set in a hardware profile so that I could decide at boot, as opposed to having to start my cpu up, change to workgroup, reboot. Then go to work, and do the reverse.
Also, as an added bonus...where on EE would I ask questions about Laptops (Like general stuff, such as what software to use to monitor battery life, stuff to use to synchronize outlook, etc)
