    I have several users that are laptop based and their password on the laptop
    is not in sync with the password in AD on the server.

    How can I fix this? I have the server set exactly the way the client wants I
    just need to force the laptops to update the local password with the server
    password.

    Thanx, Dave.

  2. I presume the laptops aren't domain computers? CTL ALT DEL on the laptop,
    and change the local password to match the domain password.

    Actually that is the problem, they are domain computers. I have three laptops
    that are remote right now and one that is in the office. All four have
    mismatched passwords and I can't get them to sync up.

    Even the laptop that is in the office. I have to log on with on password and
    then use another password to get access to resources on the server. Yes the
    laptop is part of the domain and is logging into the domain at the login
    screen.

    Please help, Dave.

  4. regards the system at the office. There is obviously a communication problem
    between it and the server. As soon as the user password on the domain is
    changed a directly connected PC which is communicating correctly to the
    server will no longer accept the old password.
    give us the output of 'ipconfig /all > c:\ipconfig.txt' from both the server
    and the affected workstation.

    Likewise for the remotes (comms), but I assume they are connecting via VPN.
    Have you
    tried expanding the 'options' on the login screen and selecting 'connect via
    VPN' (or whatever it says). If you do so the new password should be used on
    both the login screen and the VPN connection.

  5. I'm not sure I understand the problem, then. It shouldn't be too hard.
    Perhaps the username/password 'remember' boxes were ticked? That's a good
    way for users to forget the passwords ;-0.

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you for posting in SBS newsgroup.

    According to your post, do you mean you have changed the password through
    entering CTL+ ALT +DEL to match domain password on laptop, however you can
    not logon to domain using the changed password.

    As I know, if you have a machine that is currently logged on with cached
    credentials and use VPN connection to connect your domain and change the
    domain password, your local password cache may not be changed.

    You may use the VPN at the logon screen to connect to the domain and then
    log into domain to change the password and local password cache.

    1. At the logon screen check the "Log on using dial-up connection" box, and
    select the VPN connection to connect to domain.
    2. Then log into domain and try to change the password.

    You can also refer to the following KB articles to see if it helps:
