    Can members of parent domain log into a subdomain without changing the domain name at the login screen?

    is it also possible for the user from the parent domain to log into the sub domain rather than the original parent domain?

    ..but of course, as far as the child domain is concerned, they are a totally different entity to the account in the parent domain.

    Which I don't think is what the OP is trying to get at. It sounds like you want to have the same details whatever domain the user is in so they don't have to remember anything more complicated than their password - I know, I've been there too. The only way around that is to merge your domains into one*.


    *actually, you probably could do it with Federation Services, but this is dangerously complex.

    Sadly a merger of domains is out of the question. any information or advice on federation services would be appreciated as i have never heard of let alone used this service.

    Hmm, neither do I and now reading about it again I'm not sure you can do this. Anyway, the white papers are here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserv...hitepaper.mspx

    No, I set dialog to show the domain option by default, and managed to get everybody to cope with it. Took a few weeks. Here we are one domain so we don't have the same problem.

    cheers, looking like i may have to do the same and just get them to put up with what they got. never understood how it was so hard to remember an extra password in the 1st place.

    It's not even like we make it hard, they have to look at a list of options and choose the one that they know if familiar...
