Server credentials for AD when in DMZ

I have a server that connects to a domain. The server is being moved to the DMZ for security. I am wondering what happens my logon information. I can logon to the server after its moved to the dmz using the AD username and password due to the credentials being cached on the box but what happens as far as password expiry. Will the password expiry kick in or will it always remain with the same username and password. I am wondering what other people do in this scenario. Is it all local logons and removal from the domain? Thanks

Try to remove domain credentials needs using local accounts.
In case this not be possible consider one of this options:

- Placing a RO domain controller to validate users on DMZ
- Using ISA server to reverse proxy and validate users
- Permit only to this machine on DMZ communicate to your DC´s
- Set-up exclusive domain to this computer.

The options are not probably not an option for me. I am really querying around the cached credentials and will they expire

From this MVP it seems cached credentials never expire. http://www.networksteve.com/forum/topic.php?TopicId=20926
