Problems saving/caching username/password on WinXP?
Posted on 2004-09-16
I have a Windows XP workstation as do nearly all of my customer's users (tens of thousands).
They have a Windows 2000 managed network with AD. Most of my client's users do log on the the network, but I do not. I do have a network account, and I am prompted for my domain\username and password when I need to use some resource on the network (fileshare, printer, Exchange). So, everything secure.
When I go to use a fileshare or Exchange, I am prompted for the information again and again, despite checking the box to remember the credentials. I would very much like to not do this, but it doesn't seem to matter. Even if I remain on the network and simply go back to the same Exchange server again and again, I'm prompted.
Is there any reason why I'm even offer the option of saving and is there any way to have my system actually keep these credentials?
