I am in the process of transferring users data to a networked data server... It is a windows 2003 server and I am running a script on the PC's that maps the Department(g), Individuals (h); and Archive (i) folders on there pc after I set the managed passwords in User accounts via ip then domain name\user and then the password... After I set the passwords I log off run the script and map the drives... Then I transfer their user data (my documents) over to the h drive and remap/repoint their applications onto the h drive...   I have done about 25 PC's up to this point and the problem is I have encountered 3 PC's that hold onto the managed passwords through a relogin, but shut the PC down for 10 seconds, and they are no longer there... I have to reenter them...  When I shut down on the pc's i see the normal disconnecting network, saving settings dialog box's come up, but when I restart the pc's the managed passwords list is empty.  So II am at a loseas to why this is happening... The pc's are all updated with latest security patches from MS, all have latest virus patterns, and a scan reveals no virus/malware.  Any advice given would be appreciated.

hmmm.... check this local policy on these machines:
open Group Policy Editor - gpedit.msc, navigate to:
Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> Security Options
Find:
Network access: Do not allow storage of credentials or .NET Passports for network authentication
Is it enabled?

I will try the clean boot option as soon as I have some time and see if the storaed passwords work in that situation, will let you know what happens when I do.

Still waiting for a free half hour or so to do the clean state boot and see if I can shut down and store the managed passwords.
