    Logon to domain or machine? (XP Pro)

    If the user name/password is the same on both an XP machine (which is a member of a Win2K domain) and in the Win2K domain, what is the practical difference between logging onto the domain or "this machine" when logging into WinXP Pro?

    When I log onto my machine, I still seem to have access to all of the network resources of the domain.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks...Bob

    When you connect to a server it looks at the Domain name as well as the username and password. You can "connect as" another user. Either by "connect as a different user name" in explorer's map drive dialog, or by using the syntax
    <pre>C: Net Use * servershare /user:domainusername
    </pre>

    from a command window.

    I don't think that either of these will get your Group membership information from a domain controller, so if any of the shares or files have ACLs granting access to groups that you are a member of, I don't think you will be able to access them this way.
