Cached Logon Credentials


G

Guest

I have a laptop and a user(!). The user has been using cached logon
credentials to logon to her laptop when it is disconnected from our
network/domain. This has all worked fine for a couple of months.......but
today the user started getting a message telling her that her password was
incorrect. It wasn't incorrect - I connected the laptop to our network and
logged onto our domain using the password that was refused when they were off
the domain. I then deleted the user's local profile copy, and while still
connected to our network, logged on as the user. The profile was copied down,
and the user could log on OK.

However......when she logs on, she gets a message telling her that a domain
controller is not available, and she will be logged on with a temporary
profile yada yada yada. Howcome the 'no domain controller' message is coming
up? I have removed registry values mentioned in
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/242536/....so there is NO
reportcontrollermissing or reportdc value anywhere in the registry....but
still, this message comes up. It's not a major issue as far as I am
concerned, but the user, being the usual user, is VERY distressed at the
thought of having to make an extra mouse click during logon to dismiss the
domain controller message.

Any ideas greatly appreciated.
