    W7 and Multiple Domains

    Hi
    I have just been asked to set up a users laptop who travels between 3 sites so they can log on to the domains at each site. is there a way to do this without using 3rd party software?
    Thanks
    Ryan

    Do the domains have a trust between them or totally separate?

    As far as I'm aware a trust is needed, unless someone else knows better?

    Normally with a trust and Windows 7, you'd specify:

    domain1\username

    domain2\username

    domain3\username

    With Windows XP, you simply chose the domain from the drop down list.

    Without a common trust between these domains this is really a non starter.

    However as its reletively simple to switch Workgoup Names and if the user has a common login/username in all 3 Domains it might be possible to manage with something like this..
    Mobile Net Switch - The Network Connection Manager

    Otherwise there is going to be a lot of domain\username prompting to contend with.
