I need to logon with my notebook on different networks ( domains ) of complete different companies. I'm using dhcp to get the right ip-settings. So far no problem.


With windows 95...ME you logon and you are using 1 desktop. In Windows 2000/XP (NT4??) each user get his own screen saved in the profile directory and is different for each domain.

example: always login as "administrator" gives you as profiles for:

domain: "main" ...\profiles\administrator.main\.....
domain: "france" ...\profiles\administrator.france\.....

Do you know how to push Windows to take always the same profile path en files for all different domains. I can choose profiles path as c:\.... \profiles\... on my local C drive.


Thanks

I don't think that it will work right, because on the NT kernal the system uses security ids that will be different for each domain that you log onto. This will preclude the use of a common profile.

The best that you could do in this instance would be to copy all your desktop icons and startup menu to the all users profile on your laptop.

i'm not really sure, but on each domain you login, it will create a profile for you, if you logon to a different domain. you won't see your profile on your first domain. unless you want to use local profiling,
