Hi experts,

There are times when deleting the cached passwords on the server (in my case SBS 2008), is helpful. I have forgotten how to find the cached passwords to delete.

Anyone know how to get to them?

Thanks. Bert

Try running this command from a command prompt - rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr

If that doesn't do it you can do it by changing a setting in the Local Policies\Security Options.
There is a setting called "Interactive logon: Number of previous logons to cache (in case domain controller is not available)". In 2008, if you set this value to zero and apply it will delete the cached passwords right away.
Then you can set it back to your normal value and apply once again and it will be back to normal.
