Changing Passwords/Synching Passwords for Remote Users

Discussion in 'Active Directory' started by Kevin Spinnato, Oct 18, 2006.

  1. We have a 2003 Active Directory environment with desktop and laptop users.
    Our password policy is that we require password changes every 30 days and
    remember the last 12. The OS on our laptops is XP and we are using
    CheckPoint SecuRemote for our VPN solution.

    We have laptop users that will work part time in the office on the corporate
    network and part time away from the office using the VPN solution to gain
    access to the network. The problem is arising where these users will be
    required to change their passwords while working remotely. The changing part
    isn't a problem, the problem is that they will then have to log into their
    laptop with a cached network password to gain access to their OS. Once
    logged onto their OS, and then connect to our Exchange server or another
    network resource with their newly changed network password.

    Is there a way to synch laptops with Active Directory so that there isn’t a
    cached network password? I can't think of a way to synch those passwords
    since you have to login with your cached credential before establishing the
    VPN connection and then accessing the network resources with the new network
    current network credentials.

    Thanks for your time and assistance.
