My current AD domain is hprs.local. Per advice in this list I'm planning on
naming the new domain ad.ohprs.org. Currently, users login from Windows with
"HPRS\joe" as their login ID. What will they use for the ID on the new domain:
"OHPRS\joe" or will they have to use e.g. "ad.ohprs.org\joe"?

I haven't join a domain member yet so I'm not quite at this point, but as long
at we're talking about AD domain names ...
