windows 2003 multiple domain

Dear Sir,

The following are the infrastructure.

Domain - A

host name : trans
fully qualified domain name : trans.realteam.local
DNS : On the same host

Domain - B

host name  : busi
full qualified domain name : busi.server.local
DNS : On the same host


My question is

What should i do for showing both the server name in the logon screen of the windows xp workstation?

I tried to joined the first domain ie tran.realteam.local
then I tried to joined to the secod domin...ie busi.server.local

But from the Windows XP workstation logon screen, it doesn't shows both the domain name?

What could be the problem?

regards,

--Ashish Varghese

An XP machine can only be a member of one domain. If you want to access resources in both domains, you need to create a trust between the two domains.
On both DNS servers, create a secondary zone for the respective other domain (don't forget to allow zone transfer from the primary DNS server), then create the trust using the Active Directors Domains and Trusts console.
