Hello.

Can we provide some security rules (scripts) to logon to local workgroup machine with a user/password account and log on to domain resources with the same credentials without re-logon (single logon account) so as it works beetween different workgroups?

Thanks.

Naturally NO.
Workgroup authentication is done on the particular machine, which you log-in, while in domain environment passes your credentials to domain controller and does authentication there.
The problem is, that username and password is NOT all you are working with. there is SID for each user, which in domain environemnt is synchronised across the network, so the same SID is on user machine and on server.
In Workgorup even if you have the same username/password combination on server and on workstation, these SIDs are not identical.

Hope somebody could halp you with some script, as you say.
