Q: How can I keep my domain profile when logging on home network

Thanks to cached credentials, you may have two options: 1) create the home network's workgroup name as the same as the domain network at work and make sure ever thing works, and then join the computer to the domain at work. You always have the same profile. 2) Even you have different workgroup name and domain, you can logon domain instead of workgroup at home, and logon the same username and password on other home networking computers or enable guest account if you have W2K/XP. You should be able to access most network resources and use the same profile.

How to check who is logging on a particular computer

A: 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 restrict a user or group to logon-time

A:  To restrict a user to only logging on between 8AM-5PM, Monday through Friday, open a command prompt and type: net user <UserName> /times:M,8AM-5PM;T,8AM-5PM;W,8AM-5PM;Th,8AM-5PM;F,8AM-5PM. To remove the restrict, net user <UserName> /times:all.

How to connect a domain without logging on the domain

A: If you travel a lot and do not want to change the domain name to your clients' domain to connect to their network resources, you can always logon your local machine and gets IP from their DHCP. You do need a same logon id and password for your laptop and their domain. You may also want to create logon batch files such as client1.bat, client2.bat and client3.bat to map the network drives and printers. Here is a mapping example, net use h: \\server1\marketing password /user:ntdomain\logonid (you may or may not need the password in the command).

How to tell who is logged on at a remote computer

To tell who is logged on at a remote computer, use Nbtstat command. You do nbtstat -a computername or nbtstat -A ip. The <03> will show the user name.

How to setup a policy to deny certain users logon a computer

By the default, Administrators, Backup Operators, Power Users, Users, and Guest are assigned rights to log on locally on workstations and servers; Account Operators, Administrators, Backup Operators, and Print Operators are assigned rights to log on locally on domain controllers. To prevent some users to access a computer, go to MMC>Local Computer Policy>Computer Configuration>Windows Settings>Security Settings>Local Policies>User Rights Assignment, remove the Users and add a user or groups who are allowed to access to the computer.
