One laptop With Access To Different Domains

Hi 

I have to design a solution with the following requirements: 

  • Solution must be on one physical laptop, not multiple devices (as the user travels a lot)

  • Laptop must be running Windows 10. 

  • Laptop must be capable of connecting to two domains, one for CompanyA and one for CompanyB

  • Data related to CompanyA must be inaccessible from data related to CompanyB, and vice versa. 

  • Solution must be easier for the user to use, and easy to switch between the different company data. 

I have gone through the options on the different ways that I could set this up. But I'm wondering if anybody has come up with a solution for this that works well, whether using Windows 10 alone or third party hardware or software. 

thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi,

Welcome to our new Microsoft Q&A Platform.

“ Laptop must be capable of connecting to two domains, one for CompanyA and one for CompanyB”

One laptop can only have one domain, when you join CompanyA, you must exit CompanyB.

Simple and best way is to partition the hard drive and install the OS on each partition. Then set each OS to connect to a single domain. When Booting up, select the OS relavent to the domain you want to connect to.
You can still share information if you need to but this also keeps everything separate. It's just like walking around with two different laptops.

Besides, you could setup a virtual machine on the laptop that is a member of the other domain... or have the laptop a member of a workgroup and two virtual computers so you can have one for each domain.

The most easy method is to setup a Virtual Machine
