AD Home Directory

We currenlty run a Windows 2003 domain with all workstations running Windows XP. We have a Cisco NAC appliance in place to confirm patch updates and antivirus updates. The majority of our file servers are at our primary location except for one server that houses the executives home drives (which is located at a different facility). When the executives travel from that facility to our primary location their home drives do not map. Our NAC appliance is setup to not allow authentication to the domain until patches and antivirus have been confirmed. We have tried adding exceptions to the NAC appliance for the offsite file server but not having any luck with the mappings.

Is there a way to pause/sleep the AD mapping of the home directory long enough for the NAC appliance to verify everything?
