How do we setup accounts to be able to login on Windows 10 PC through our network

We have a network which runs on Windows Server 2003.

Staff here login to their own accounts on their Windows 10 PCs and their accounts are on our network.

They want to login to their accounts on the new Windows 10 PCs in our meeting room.

I know how to do things on Windows 10 PCs like seeing the network and other PCs on the network through this PC.

How would I setup staff to be able to login to their accounts through our network on these PCs?

If you are using a domain, any domain user may logon on all workstations already by default.

You have BYOD setup I believe

Hence you have local accounts which are restricted to specific PC only

U can't logon to another PC with same account unless you have AD setup?

If you do not have a domain, then you will have to manually create the accounts on the new machines via Control Panel, User Accounts.

If you do have adomain, then you need to join the new machines to the domain via Control Panel, System, Advanced System Settings, Computer Name, Change. Once rebooted, users can use their existing domain accounts as before.

You should consider getting rid of Windows 2003 immediately as it is extremely insecure and outdated... it is a liability to every machine you join to it.

We have an Active Directory setup with our Windows 10 PCs connected to the one domain (where we have the network running on Windows Server 2003)

I am looking to connect these PC accounts to one PC which is part of a meeting room.

How would I setup staff to be able to login to their accounts through our network on this PC?


Are these users in question local users? If they domain users, as you would expect on domains, they can already logon anywhere by default.

The users in question are domain users.

The PC only has local user profiles on it but the PC is connected to the network.

Does the PC in question have to be connected to the domain as well for domain users to login with their accounts?
