Good Morning All,

 

We have 3 computers that are taken off the network during the evenings, up to this point, we have just been using local accounts on the computers and no server accounts.  Now the call has been made to provide everyone server accounts and do away with the local accounts.  I know that when they are off site, they will get the "No Logon servers currently available" sign at login.  My question is I have heard about cached credentials, how do they work, is it something that I have to setup for them to be cached or something I have to enable?  I am new to the idea of being able to logon away from the domain.  We do not currently have a VPN connection available but are in the process of setting one up.

 

Our server is Windows Server 2008.  And the laptops are running Windows 7 Pro.

 

Thanks!!

The credentials should be cached by GPO, called cached credentials. One simple thing to remember is that you must still have them log on while on your network for the first time. After that they will be able to log on even when not connected.  Also remember that this setting "times out" so to speak.  If they are gone for months on end then you might want to consider VPN's as well.
