For some reason, the IT department at our company does not want to add Windows 7 and Windows Vista machine to the domain controller.
I hate to always provide my network credentials everytime I access a shared folder on a machine that is joined to the domain. I also hate to always provide my password when I launch outlook or Visual Studio (Team Explorer).
Is there a way to mimic the behavior of a machine that is added to a domain without actually adding the machine in the domain?
For shares, I can create a batch file that will NET USE the different fileservers we use here but that is a huge security risk as I will type my password as plaintext.
