I have a NT 4.0 Workstaiton that is attached to the domain.  The server (domain) will soon be no more and we'll just be peer to peer.  My question is, when the domain controller disappears will the NT 4.0 box still be able to login with stored credentials?  I have another box I've been testing that has been away from the domain for many months and I can still login to the system and access the network.  Thanks in advance.

It will continue to use stored credentials, but what is the point if its server is removed?  You can create a local account for that workstation and then won't have to worry about it.  Access to all resources will still be based on a username and password and you can type them in as you need to use them.

The profile that is being used has CNC software installed along with lots of saved files pertaining to the CNC.  The system can be touchy and I'd soon leave it as is so long as I can still login with the same profile.

Okay.  The cached credentials should never expire.  However, I would still create another admin account locally just in case anything ever happens.  It will give you one more way to get in "just in case".
