2 seperate domains, 1 login

Is this possible?? We have our mailn domain and testing domain.  Would like one login for both, without a trust if possible.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Unfortunately in that scenario with two separate domains not connected at all you won't be able to use one account/login.
Thanks

Sadly, the only way is to setup a trust between the two.

The only way to do this is with a domain trust.  Why don't you want to setup a trust?

can it be a one way trust??

2003domainadminCommented:
Yes.  You can use what is called a Shortcut Trust:  Both domains will need to be in the same forest though.

Actually you can also use an External Trust for the same thing if they are in different forests.
