I do development and administration for three different organizations. None of them know anything about the others, nor do they want to (no cross-certification, etc.). This leaves me with three ID's, three location docs, etc. Here's the annoying part. If I'm working in a database in one domain, and I need to pop over to a database/server in another domain--changing location, and therefore ID, causes all open windows, etc. to close.
Is there any way (on my own) to collapse these three ID files into one, such that each domain will recognize me appropriately? Is there even a better way to do what I'm doing (than having three locations)?
Outside of setting up your own domain (your company) and having them cross-certify that ID, you will have to use the separate locations and IDs. Hey, be happy you have 3 clients who want your services. It shows you must be doing something right. Switching locations is a small price to pay.
