Hi experts.

My company actualy have two offices, with two distinct domains:
intranet.office1.com and intranet.office2.com. Both domains was created as "First domain of a forest".

Some laptop users have theirs machines as members of the first domain (intranet.office1.com) because they always worked there as a local user. Now, they need to go to my 2nd office (intranet.office2.com), plug the laptop on the network and log on.

Now, one day they will work on office1, next day they will work on office2, and so on. So, they need to be able to log on both domains, but needs to remain members of the 1st domain.

Remember that they don't need to acess the office1's system while on office2... They only needs to log on and have access to local network, wherever which office they are.

How could a configure the office2's domain to able logon from office1 domain's users?
Thanks a lot!!!

Have you got a reliable WAN or site-to-site VPN link between the sites?  If so you should look at creating a trust between the forests, it would have to be two-way if users need to go both ways.  I presume mering the domains into the same forest or migrating users all onto the same forest is out of the question here?
