I have a small Small Business Server 2008 domain composed of 1 HP ML350 G5 server and 5 workstations. Four workstations run Windows 7 Pro, one runs Windows XP.
Sometimes when I log onto a workstation I'm not sure whether the workstation has connected to the server.
A long time ago when I used Windows NT server, the workstation would clearly announce it had not connected by showing a message stating “cached login”. Now workstations do not issue a message. Sometimes I can tell because the login takes much longer than usual.
Q) How can I tell if a workstation has logged onto the server or has used a cached login?
