    Hi guys,

    I just wanna know how to show a drop-down list in xp logon with a list of available multiple domains, rather than just one domain and local option. I thought about changing the name of domain in the system properties every time you need to log on to a different one but I am sure this is not do-able in a corporate environment(amount of time changing setting and support wise).
    I have looked on the net and googled it but didnt get a clear instructions. sorry if I posted in the wrong place but I am sure many of you here would know the answer.

    Thanks

    The PC needs to be a member of a domain that is in a forest with other domains, therefore you can chose which domain to logon to.

    Thanks sparky,
    I think I understood what you said but not a single clue how to implement this.
    I am thinking since this is done automatically with a single domain, is it still the case with multiple domains? or needs advanced configuration to perform?

    cheers

    If you have a single domain just now add another domain, run dcromo and follow the instructions on how to add a child domain. After that your PC should have the option to log into both domains.

    Yup, typo! :biggrin

    You do need to run it on another server so that can be the first DC in your child domain.
