Domain User Accounts

For the most part, Domain user accounts are the preferred way to implement network security. Although there is additional complexity involved in maintaining a Domain architecture, Domain accounts have the following compelling advantages over local accounts:

  • Domain accounts exist as objects in the Active Directory, and thus may be centrally (and securely) managed.

  • Access to resources on any computer in the Domain may be granted to Domain accounts. This allows a single Domain account to have access to resources on multiple computers. To accomplish this with local accounts, each computer accessed would require an identical account and password.

  • Domain accounts can be granted access to resources in other Domains when trust relationships have been established. With new support in Windows 2000 for transitive trusts, access to other Domain resources may not even require an explicit trust.
