Ok, I have no idea why the idea was never thought of when we received this laptop (I for sure would have nixed it immediately), but I have a question I am posing to the noble sys admins that may read this page.
I have *one* Win2k (sp3) laptop user who travels back and forth between two sites. Each with separate domains (nt4-sp6 and win2k-sp2/active directory). How can I get her to connect to both domains without:
- Allowing them admin rights
- Not having them do the workgroup thing
- Not allowing trusts between the two domains
- Not installing Win98 or WinMe
- Not saying it can’t cheaply be done
I have played around with the setting the workgroup thing and while I can easily nudge getting Outlook to see each of the different Exchange boxes, I am having major issues getting any of the domain printers to install right. Thus I think that workgroup thing can be nixed. Unless someone can help me figure out why I can’t install any of the domain printers onto the laptop when it’s in a workgroup. Could it be some weird ass policy setting??
I have also thought of perhaps conning them into installing Server onto the laptop so that I can create a trust relationship between the laptop and the seperate domains… Yeah, I know really stupid…
Any idears out there?
You know, this is so easy if it were done via Linux… :sigh:
