Using SSMS Across Domains

My laptop is in domain A but my SQL server is in domain B and only uses Windows Authentication.

There is no trust relationship between the domains.

How can I open SSMS and manage my SQL instance?

My personal preference is to use ShellRunAs - to run the application with a different set of user credentials. That way you can run SSMS as a user from domain B, and use the windows authentication goodness.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
