Logon locally and remotely
Q1: I currently have a
laptop in a Workgroup. I use Cisco VPN client to connect
to my office network. Yesterday I went to office and had the tech supp join
my laptop to the company domain.
When I bring the laptop back home, I rebooted my laptop and now I can't log
in. I get an error message when I try to log on to the domain. It says
something "Domain not found" I understand this is obvious since I am not
connected yet to the domain.
So what is the right way to do this? I want to work remotely and I want the
laptop in the domain.
A1: You may have many options. Bring the
laptop back to the office and logon the domain using your username. Then
disable the LAN connection and try to logon again. Make sure the cached
Another option is to have the administrator remove
the domain and change it back to workgroup. Logon VPN using the domain
Or simply change the
domain in the logon box to the name of the local computer and log onto the
computer using your old local credentials. Logon VPN using the domain
