RIS again, Multiple domains, 1 RIS server, how?
Posted on 2006-07-13
I got the last problem worked out with the help of another member here. Now I have another question...
I have a network that I inherited that I am in the process of working on.
There is a primary domain, and currently 2 child domains (there are actually 6 domains that are being shifted into the new structure). The RIS server I have setup is on one of the child domains. I would like to be able to use that single server to setup systems for each of the domains, but I am not sure how to do this.
It seems that the configuration in the RIS setups doesn't easily allow for one to selectively join different domains. The closest thing to what I need appears to be in the .sif file and it states:
JoinDomain = %MACHINEDOMAIN%
But, I'm not sure what I could change it to. Ideally I'd like it to ask me what domain to join, or workgroup to join. there are actually a couple of small workgroups here as well and most computers are the same, but they just have different domain / workgroup selections. I know there has to be a way to do this, just not sure how / where / what.
