I have a situation I've not seen before. I've just inherited a network to support that has had some wierd problems over the last year and trying to get familiar with the environment.
lets say the internal domain name is mynetwork.local and all the full computer names have this in their full name. For example Server1.mynetwork.local and a workstation has a computer name of workstation1.mynetwork.local
All the logons use a different local domain for example mn\user1 instead of mynetwork\user1 and everyone is able to logon without errors.
There is a server 2008 DC
there also is a server 2003 for APPS and Citrix server
and there is also another server 2003 for BES and Backup Exec
Can someone please explain this?
Could this be a valid setup?
