Connect 1 Pc to Multiple Domains

I have 1 PC (XP PRo) that will ultimately connect to 2 Domains. (Domains will
not be Trusted and Never will be Joined)
Other than Dual Boot with 2 OS system each called Domain 1 and Domain 2 is
their any other way this 1 PC can connect to Multiple domains.

Thanks in advace for any help

1 Domain is 2003 the other is likely to be SBS2003 R2

If you create the same doamin username on local computer, you should be able
to access the domain resource without joining it. This how to may help,

Hi Dickie,

You can access resources in multiple domains, but you can never have a
workstation be a member of more than one.

RE: Connect 1 Pc to Multiple Domains

Thanks for the reply.

The PC will need to connect to the domain and not share files. 1 Domain will
be a 2003 AD Forest with several Servers, the other Domain will be a SBS2003
R2 Domain. The PC will also need to use a different IP and Subnet on each
domain.

From what you have said the only way of doing this would be a multiple OS
boot each partitiion called Domain 1 and Domain 2.

RE: Connect 1 Pc to Multiple Domains

You are correct that dual boot would allow a single machine to access both.
I am curious, what business problem are you trying to solve? Maybe we're too
far down in the weeds looking at only one technical solution. Depending on
your needs we might be able to find another solution -- TS or something like
that.

RE: Connect 1 Pc to Multiple Domains

The scenario is simple albeit complicated (Yeah thats sound very
contradictory)
The current business has purchased a new business but they both need to
operate separately. The 2 systems will use a FileMaker system which
broadcasts to the domain 1 filemaker server (it can only ever be 1 filemaker
server). So the 2 INTERNAL domains will need to be completely separated.
We have run through the 2 PC's for every user scenario, Sub Domains
(Filemaker don't like it) and the Multi Boot Option.
So I'm slightly lost on how I can get 1 PC (this will be upto 5) to connect
onto 2 domains. I'm sure we can find a network subnet solution but I fear
this may get very technical..

Re: Connect 1 Pc to Multiple Domains

Don't forget that setting up a trust relationship between domains does NOT
give any permissions to the users, only the *possibility* to give
permissions.

Maybe a one-way trust is the way to go...

RE: Connect 1 Pc to Multiple Domains

Hello again,

Generally on something like this, you would have a separate forest with a
trust back to the parent corporation. Then you'd work through the issues on
FM to make it accessible by both. I haven't worked with FM in years, so I
can't be of much help there, but I do know that it can be used through other
authentication methods -- like exposing it to web users. You may have to
look at the overall solution and offer the FM as a service like you would to
an external partner or an end consumer.

I guess, I am saying that there isn't an easy path here, but that you can
get through this by maintaining corporate security and making services
available as external resources. Of course, you could merger your internal
IT and do it that way, but that is a business decision that sounds like it
has already been been made.

Cheers,
