Newb here so please be patient.
I have a laptop running Windows 2000 Pro which belongs to work. It sits at
home mainly as my VPN client.
When my password at work expires (they use Active Directory), I still log
on to my laptop at home with my old password. I assume this is because the
local AD account information is cached. Then I log on to my work network
through a VPN. Things are mostly fine. If I want to use Outlook, I have
to specify my name, password and domain. Normally this isn't necessry
through single sign on.
My question.... Is there a way I can force the local cache to synch up
with my work's AD domain after I VPN in? I find that I have to bring my
laptop back to work and hook it up directly to the LAN there in order for
the cache to get synched. I'd rather have a solution for home.
