Windows cached password question
Hi all. I have a Windows 7 laptop that's a member of a Windows domain. The person using this laptop can obviously log into it with his domain credentials (domainname\username and then his domain account password) when he's connected to the network or not. What I'm wondering is if there's a time limit set on how long that password will be cached locally. This laptop may not connect directly to our network for 6 months or more. What I'm worried about is if one day in a few weeks he'll attempt to log into the laptop with his domain credentials and be told he can't because he's not connected to the domain. Any idea on how long that password is cached for?

I don't know of a time limit, but there is a setting for cached attempts.
The default for CachedLogonsCount is 10, but max is 50.
6 months? Not even to VPN in? If that's the case, maybe you want to create a local user instead.
