  • You can - but it is a little bit complicated, because you have to
    reboot after each change to get that change applied. I'd try to find an
    easier solution if you have to switch often between workgroup and
    domain.

  • Removing the computer from the domain only requires that you are logged into the workstation that is a member of the local administrators group.  However, joining the domain will require that you have rights to the computer object and/or rights that allow you to join the domain.
