    Rpuffd / I have tried both, the credentials maegnar and this post, neither has worked for me, but I have an odd situation in that I need to connect to resources in multiple domains. The credentials maegnar works great until you reboot. Then, Win7 seems to do a bit of it’s own housecleaning and any entries in the credentials maegnar that are in the SAME domain as the computer are removed. The entries for the second domain remain ans work fine. I have validated this by moving the computer in and out of both domains. When in domain A, the creds for A are removed and the creds for B remain, when the computer is in domain B, the creds for B are removed and the creds for A remain. I need them BOTH to stay on reboot. My persistence is set to Enterprise and I cant find a way to change that. Any and all suggestions are welcome, and TIA.
