Windows 7 laptop no logon servers availiable while using a domain login without a network cable

I am trying to enable a laptop to logon without the domain present for a user to use a laptop outside the company.  We use RSA secure login and wanted the laptop to login and then connect to the domain through RSA secure ID.  I am running Windows 7 Enterprise edition and get the message.

There are currently no logon servers availiable to service your request.

Does anybody know a way to enable Windows 7 to logon without a network cable attached.  I have tried to change a registry setting to change it from 0 to 0-50 with no luck here.

What type of server infrastructure do you have? You could try using DirectAccess, which ships with Windows 7 Pro. and up.

Did you login as the user while onsite?

Even with Windows XP if you do not have the user login to the domain before going to the field, you are denied access.

Windows is unable to validate credentials. If you setup a admin account, you will have to use that or a local login.

I think you are talking abot the cachedlogonscount registry entry. Default is 10, not zero, so this could be the problem: it had been modified before.
If this new modification is ok with your policies, set it to the default of 10 and restart, login while connected to the domain, logoff, disconnect and try again. If it still does not work, the reason can only be an active group policy - if so, start rsop.msc to locate and alter it.
