Active Directory Log-Ons
Posted on 2006-07-08
How can one tell how a PC is configured to allow users to authenticate? If I recall right, you can go to "My Computer," right-click and select "manage"...(?) And I forgot the rest.
In other words, we have an AD server on our local network, which we authenticate to when we are plugged into the local segment. Each person has an Active Directory profile/account, of course. yadda yadda yadda...
OK...but we also use our laptops out in the field, and I know we are not authenticating to any server when we are out in the field. We power up the laptop, enter our log-on credentials when prompted, and then the laptops boot up to the correct profile and we go on our merry way.
So, how can I access the configurations on my PC that dictate how a user will authenticate in each situation? After I view the configs, I will either have my other questions answered or I will ask some more.
Thank you to all in advance
