Hi..

For various reasons...

I have one subnet, with two domains. Users have the same name and password on both Domains. They login to domain1 and the drives get mapped to a server in domain2. All works fine.

My question is, is there anything wrong with this setup? What would I gain from setting up a trust between the two domains instead?

thanks

PT

What happens when a user wants to change their password? They need to change it in 2 places...

A lot of applications/resources can't handle implicit logon. If you never came across any issues i do not see any reason for a trust. Keep in mind that the implicit logon can break with any future update.

> what does implict logon mean?

Logon without a computer or domain trust. Aka pass-through authentication. Like Ton said, not the most reliable mechanisme.

Let's turn it around. Why _not_ use a trust?
