Log onto domain from a workgroup machine running Vista Ultimate
Posted on 2008-06-16
My laptop [Vista Ultimate (32-bit)] is a configured as a member of a workgroup. The workgroup name is the same as the name of the domain at my consulting client's office. I have a domain user account, but the laptop is not a member of the domain.
I am trying to use NET LOGON to log onto the domain -- but the NET command does not have a LOGON option. When I try to use it from a command prompt, it politely lists the available options:
[ ACCOUNTS | COMPUTER | CONFIG | CONTINUE | FILE | GROUP | HELP |
HELPMSG | LOCALGROUP | PAUSE | PRINT | SESSION | SHARE | START |
STATISTICS | STOP | TIME | USE | USER | VIEW ]
NET USE works fine, and I can map drive letters to various domain server shares using my domain credentials.
How can I log onto the domain?
