I am trying to setup a new user on an existing laptop that is not in the office with our server.  When I try to login as the new user it get message no login servers are available, and that makes sense since its not connected.  When using the Sonicwall VPN, if you switch users or logoff it disconnects and then cannot authenticate the new user login at the control alt del screen.

Best way, no doubt, is to get the laptop onsite.

Other than that you need to have the VPN active while logging in. You can try if you can follow the advice given at https://techkurt.wordpress.com/2009/04/21/sonicwall-vpn-before-windows-logon/, which basically uses a group policy for setting up a startup script starting the VPN pre login.
