A question about NT Domains

This is also my understanding. Furthermore, unless domains have a trust
relationship (administrator goes and establishes either a one way or two way
trust relationship at each PDC), a user cannot have Single Sign on even in a
pure Microsoft environment (unless the user name and password are identical).

Paul will correct me if I am wrong about this.

I don't know if this is always true (there may be a way to set policy to
prevent it), but I am currently logged in to the same domain using my one
account, from all three of my machines.

So I believe that what you said is true.
