... seem to drop their computer passwords with the server. For example, a laptop I occassionally use at home is always being denied because it hasn't logged in in sometime, yet my personal credentials are fine. This also happens on my home computer via VPN if I don't log in all the time. I can rejoin the domain with no problems but how can I prevent this from happening in the first place? With me it's no problem because I'm an admin, but people who aren't in the office all the time have the same problem. I did actually search for this once before and didn't get far and had to move on. It might be because I'm using the wrong terminology though. Any help? PS This is in a W2K environment.
