How to access different domain without changing the network settings

 To use a laptop to access to different domain without changing the domain settings, logon local machine (instead of domain) using your domain logon ID that also are created on your local computer. If it is possible, you may create the same logon id and password on all domain so that you always are able to access the domain you are connecting to. Also you may want to create one batch file like logon.bat with domain logon ID and password to map network drives.

How to Assign a Home Directory to a Domain User

To assign a home directory to a domain user, open Active Directory Users and Computers. In the Details pane, right-click the applicable user account, and then click Properties. In the Properties dialog box, click the Profile tab. Under Home folder, type the directory information.

How to change the network information for a Domain Controller

When you try to change the network information to a domain comptroller, you find the Network ID and Properties buttons will not be available. The way to change the network information on a domain controller would be to demote the controller to a member server, change the necessary information, and then promote the server back to a domain controller.

How to check who is logging on a particular computer

If you would like to check who is  logging on a particular PC in the (same subnet) network, you can use command nbtstat -a computername. That will show NetBIOS Remote Machine Name Table such as username, <03>, type and status.

How to synchronize the time on all the computers in a network

To synchronize the time on all the computers in a network, create a logon script and use net time command, for example, net time \\computername /set /yes.

How to verify if you are logged on to the domain and  which server you are logging on

To verify if you are logging on to the domain and  which server you are logging on, at a command prompt, type set, and then press ENTER. Look for the LOGONSERVER entry. If it is set to the name of your computer, you were logged on using cached domain credentials. If you are logging on the domain, the LOGONSERVER entry is set to one of the domain controllers.

How can I synchronize all computers' time in the network?

A: You as an Administrators can configure an internal time server as authoritative by using the net time command.

You can also configure the Time Service on the AD to recognize an external Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) time server as authoritative. Use the following net time command: net time /setsntp:server_list. Note: 1) The United States Naval Observatory runs several SNTP time servers that are satisfactory for this function, for example, ntp2.usno.navy.mil (at 192.5.41.209) and tock.usno.navy.mil (at 192.5.41.41). 2) that SNTP uses User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port 123. If this port is not open to the Internet, you cannot synchronize your server to Internet SNTP servers.

After you set the SNTP time server as authoritative, run the following command on computers other than the domain controller to reset the local computer's time against the authoritative time server: net time \\servername /set /yes.

How do I un-synchronize time on my domain network?

Q:  I have an isolated Windows 2000/NT domain for I/O testing. I want to change TIME on one of my W2K server; however after approx. 30min. the TIME of this server was reset back to my domain time.

A:  You can disable the 'Windows Time' service on the computer you don't want to update.
