Dear All,

We are facing a issue with some of the remote locations for our Organisation
where we does not have Domain Controllers installed. The users out there gets
authenticated to some remote domain Controllers. The issue we are facing is
that the users are not able to login, access shared folder and printers which
are local to that location if the link to other location is down. As because
the users are not able to get to the domain controllers they are not able to
login. They can login if they remove the network cable using Cache
credentials.

Is there a way that the users can login with cache credentials even if the
network cables are connected and DC is not reachable. Secondly we need to
have a workaround for the users so that they can also access shared folders
when the DC is unavailable.

Kindly help me with any possible solution/workaround to the same which we
can tell to the Local MIS teams in the locations.

Thanks
Sukhwinder

Hello Sukhwinder,

Never had any problems to logon with cacahed credentials even if the cable
is connected. It will take longer that's all. Without authentication to the
domain you are not able to use network ressources because the file server
is not able to authenticate.

You must have a running DC/DNS server.

If your connection brakes very often, install a DC/DNS/GC in the site, so
at least anybody is able to logon and work in the remote office.

If you need the data also always accessible you should use DFS to replicate
data between the remote office and the main site. This way you are able to
have also this available.

Best regards
