I have a laptop that is running XP SP2.
What I need it for is sometimes users need to log in locally to the machine and change the IP settings for local testing.
Other times users need to log into the domain and access network resources where the IP settings should be set for DHCP.
What I have done so far is created a local admin account on the laptop to allow them to log in locally and added the users domain accounts to the user accounts so they have access.
My question is this, is there a way to be able to make it so when they want to log into the domain they dont have to fuss with the IP settings.
The problem is after someone has used it locally for testing the next person has to log in and set the IP back to DHCP so they can use network resources.
Looking for suggestions on a good way to do this.
I did look into Hardware Profiles, but that is only if you want to disable or enable hardware, it doesnt work in this case because I need to use the NIC card in both scenarios, just with different settings.
Thanks for any ideas!
