Login to Domain Without Being Connected to Domain
Posted on 2005-04-25
I have a laptop that on which I logon to a Domain at work (large network). I do not have any local user defined on the laptop, only a domain user id (domain\user).
When I take the laptop home, I can log into the laptop with the domain user Id, even though I am not connected to the Domain.
(Of course I have no access to Domain resources at this point).
Question 1: How am I able to log into the Laptop with a domain user ID even though I am not connected to the Domain?
Then, I use a VPN connection to connect to the Domain, and I receive a Login greeting and have full access to Domain resource.
Question 2: How is a Login Script launched when I am not logging in (again). The only time I logged in was when disconnected from the Domain.
