Domain Log Ons

I just got a new laptop from corporate MIS.

They gave me log on credentials: a username, password, and a domain name.  

When I try to log on, it says it cannot log me on because the domain is not available. Of course not, thats normal since Im not connected to the local network. It cant find the DC.

However, shouldnt the log-on credentials have been locally cached in the PC after having logged me onto the network successfully the first time (when they created my accoutn and set up my laptop)? I thought that the log-on credentials are checked against the domain controller and then cached locally when the user logs off the network, so that the next time they try logging in, if they are off-net, the local (cached) credentials will be used.

Of course you will have no network services, but you will be able to log onto your PC!

No?

Are you sure they logged on as your account when they did the setup?

Are you in a position to take it into the office, log in yourself, then loggoff, unplug the cable and try again to see if it behaves itself..?

Maybe they have a policy to prevent cached credentials..?
