For what I've been reading in several similar questions, it seems to me that this is actually a featured designed to work in the way that I'm seeing it, but part of it still does not seem right.
So, I work remotely and I connect through VPN software to my company's network, on which I have access to several shared resources, servers and such. For all of those, I use my domain login and password: mycompany\myuser.
However, when I need to manage resources, (for example, AD groups I own) and I want to add a user to them, the user search functionality from Windows will only allow me to search on my local machine or my local domain. Is there any workaround on this?
My solution so far has been bringing up another machine which is joined to the domain (so, I login into it with my domain username and password) and I'm able to manage the resources. Sometimes I may not have the chance to bring up this machine, and I would like to know if there is any workaround on that.
