Domain login profile copy required
Posted on 2009-04-15
We have people who work remotely (Xp Pro) and connect up post login via a VPN connection. When a new user starts we need them to be able to log into the laptop as their new login without coming into the office/logging onto the network. We can establish a VPN under another user account to administer the computer. "Log on using dial-up connection" is not an option as we use 2 factor RSA token authentication and our VPN Client vendor does not support this method of authentication pre-login.
How do we get the users profile onto a machine? Is it possible to create a cached account on a local machine in the office and copy it across?
We cannot simply copy the users logon directory as we need the users cached password copied across as well. The account the user uses to authenticate must be a domain account and not a local one.
