    we are migrating from nt4 to 2003. We are going to consolidate into 1
    domain. ourdomain.local will be the root and corp.ourdomain.local will be
    the domain where all the good stuff will be. Anyway, to make life easy for
    our users, is it possible to make all users logons
    vs. ? This seems like a trivial thing but I
    know our users will complain.

    We will be in 2003 native mode..

    Thanks in advance.

  3. Hi JC,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    When users logon computer into domain, they only need to type the user
    logon name and password. The domain name can be selected in the logon
    dialog.

    Do you mean that you want to use same suffix (@ourdomain.local ) to logon
    computer even the user is in child domain?

    Yes you are correct, if in a child domain we want the users to log on as
    @rootdomain.local.

  5. Hi JC,

    If so, you can just change the User Principal Name (UPN) of user in Active
    Directory Users and Computers of child domain. Select the root domain
    suffix in the "User Logon Name" box.

    Have a nice day!
