Hi Experts,

I have a laptop and I am working in three different companies, and they each have their own different domains.

But I required to choose the domain on my login screen among the three different domains.

How can I do that, because I was only able to assign one domain to my PC.

Thanks in advance.

It is not possible to join a computer running windows to multiple domains.  Try using a virtual machine like windows XP Mode in Windows 7 or Virtual Box.

Machine can just be part of one domain at a time.. unless these 3 companies have trust between their domain it is not possible for you to login without putting your machine to the domain in which you want to work.

i will suggest you can have 3 VM on your system. and you can put that VM on the domain of individual companies..
or you can make your system multi boot...

Hi BlueYounder,

But I have seen in some computers that on the login screen that they can choose the domain they want to login to.

NetSwitcher is the only product that can do this without using a multi-boot option that I'm aware of.

> But I have seen in some computers that on the login screen that they can choose the domain they want to login to.
If the companies you work with all want to TRUST each other, then you can get this drop down list.  The list can only display domains that are trusted with the domain you are a member of. (I SERIOUSLY doubt you'd get the ok from all companies to "trust" each other, but even if you did, another restriction (no idea if you'd encounter it), Small Business Server does not support trusts so if any of the companies use SBS, you cannot get them listed.

Otherwise, you can set your user name and password the same on each domain (assuming you have the ability to control your user name).
