Hope some one can help a network/server noob understand how domains work in AD.
I am in an organisation with 2 AD servers in 2 different countries, e.g. US and UK, and they set up the US and UK domains respectively. the accounts are set up such that all employees in both countries have a US\user and UK\user account.
What is the difference if a UK user logon with US\user from a local UK computer, versus RDP (remote desktop) into a US server with US\user?
Thanks for your help.
EDIT: I am not sure how to see if it is the "same network", but given they are different geographically, seems like they are on different LAN? I find that with both login methods , all UK and US domains are "searchable" from the "search active directory" function under "network" -- if that helps.
Apparently there are 2 reasons for having different accounts. (1) Some software have limited install license issue such that users currently need to RDP into the remote computer to use it (it's silly, I don't know why). (2) Some software only allow users on the domain from which it is installed on, users from other domains cannot connect to it.
