Hi;
I have some 80 users in domain.Some of the users mainly go out and stay out of office for long time. I have created two users for them one is domain and another is local. So when they are connected to domain they will use domain user and when they are roaming they will use local user. Is there any way to use only one user if they are out or inside the office the same domain user only. Any idea.

Thanks

Hi there,

By default, Windows will cache the user logons on those workstations if that particular user has logged on before, so there should be nothing you need to do.

Cached logons can be disabled or modified in Group Policy, but by default this functionality exists.

Hi;
Thanks for the reply.
For how long users can login without without authenticating to domain. If users are having roaming profiles. What to do in this case.
Thanks

Check out this Microsoft KB, as it gives you a lot of information on how cached credentials work.

There is no expiration on cached credentials, so the user will continue to be able to log in. Obviously, any changes to the user account in Active Directory won't take effect on that workstation until the machine can contact a Domain Controller.
