I have 50 sites with their own local file server and limited connectivity to central site with multiple DCs. We have decided not to put a DC on these site to reduce replication traffic killing the WAN link.  They do have ISDN backup but the customer wants to know what happens if the WAN link is completely dead (including ISDN backup link)

I know you can do a cached logon from the win2k workstation but when we try to map the local file server Kerberos authentication fails and we cannot map.  This is NOT a question of having a GC.  There is no DC and cached credentials seems not to work same as NT4.  

ms says: Use Terminal services or use local ACLs but both are support and cost issues that are too expensive to implement.  

question: Does Cached credentials allow mapping to a file server if no DC present???

Hi , you  can’t map network drive using cached credential. You can make work group environment by creating local IDs on servers and Map Network drives using “Connect As"
