Hello

I have a user with a laptop who logs in with local administrator account, not currently in the domain.  The user uses VPN to connect to the domain.  I can remote control his laptop once VPN connection is established.  The only account on the laptop os the Administrator, which he uses.  I was able to add the computer to the domain, but:

1.  how do i create his profile on his laptop?

He can't log in because his profile isn't created on the laptop. I need a command line way to create his user account with password on the laptop.  That way he can log in local first then establish a VPN connection with his own AD account and not with the local Administrator.

Thank you,
Ariel_S

You can configure your VPN to launch prior to logging in this way he can log in under his account and create the profile.

How do i do that?  I just need it to create his profile and cache his password once so he can log in first, then VPN.
