    As i am working my way through the Self Paced Kit for 270, i have noticed little differences in the way Windows behaves depending on if your machine is a member of a domain or not.

    For example, tonight i have been looking at disk quotas. One of the tasks was to create a user account using control panel...user accounts (not via MMC). Because my laptop is a member of a domain (although not logged in to the domain) it brought up a completely different dialog to the local one normally presented.

    See attached.

    Any other things <pop> in to people's mind in this situation, so i can add it to the <difference> list?

    Si (running for cover :) )

    Log onto your domain as a user in AD on a PC, then click on the ‘user accounts’ icon in Control Panel, you should get a ‘Run As’ prompt so you can make changes with a domain account that has privileges to make a change to local users on a PC. In a workgroup you would get straight into ‘user accounts’ and the options are varied depending if you logged in with a limited or admin account. 8)
