We've got a few users in a remote office that only access any of the servers through the SonicWALL Global VPN Client. Their machines are members of the Active Directory domain here, so they can access Exchange mail and network shares while the VPN connection is active... works great.
The issue is changing their domain passwords. If I change it for them manually at the server, any authentication session taking place after the change should be fine (accessing shares, logging into email). But what about their local machine logins to the domain? Will they still need to login with their previous cached password on the machine? Since the VPN connection is activated after login (in software), the initial Windows login can never see the server.
Does anyone know what will happen if we go through with this? Does anyone know a workaround besides bringing the machines back on site here?
