How to connect a laptop to two domains


R

I have two domains and a number of laptops. I would like
to be able to connect the laptops to either of the domains
without the users having to change the settings, the
laptops use static ip addresses and the domains have
different subnets. Can you help?

is it possible to set up a trust between the domains?

No native way to do this unless there's a trust between the domains. There's
a third party tool called MultiNetworkManager (google it) that allegedly
works well, tho I don't use it.

Why static IPs, if I may ask?

if the laptop *or any pc needs to log in to ANY domain all it needs in a
VALID user account with which to log into that domain.
create user account (maybe spell it same with same password) on each of the
domains and when you want to switch domains enter the name of domain you
wish to log into..

The only works when there is a Trust between the Domains. The machine is
not changing membership, it is simply being authorized in the 2nd domain via
its credentials in the 1st domain using the Trust.

Which should be fine,...that's how it is supposed to work.

Wanting to keep the two domains separate and yet log into either with
the same machine is not really resonable nor is it the best way to do it.
You're wanting to "have your cake and eat it too". The best way to handle
it is to use a One-Way Trust.

Going with MultiNetworkManager as Marina suggested is probably the closest
you'll get to a "perfect world".
