FAQ: Can a user use an explicit domain for SQL server Windows authentication like “<domain>\<domain id>” in PowerCenter?
In PowerCenter, whenever the user uses Windows authentication, the user has to select Authentication Method: 4 - Kerberos which automatically disables User Name.

So, it is not possible to set the domain explicitly and it would pick up the domain automatically with which the user has logged in.

In order to use another domain, the user has to login to the Windows box using the other domain and the domains should have trust between the two.
