Cached Password issue?

Guest

I have a Laptop user running windows XP SP2. Yesterday the user was logged
onto our WIN2K3 Domain just fine. Today he is on the road and is trying to
login to his laptop using the same username and password credentials he
always uses, but it is saying his username and/or password are incorrect.
This ID and password are domain acct ID and Passwords. So is there a way to
clear the cached password locally on an XP machine, for an account that is a
domain account?

By default, cached credentials and cached profiles are enabled - unless you
have group policy set up to deny it. Does anyone else have this problem?
Without your being able to get your hands on the laptop to check it out,
it's hard to say what might be going on, outside of having him double and
triple check that he is typing in his login name, password correctly and
choosing "log on to" the domain, not the local machine.

Dear Roman,

Please use localhost\username instead of using "username" or
"Domain\Username" and then try to login. But for this user need to have an
account in his Local machine's User group.

With regards,
