I have a machine that connects to a domain over a VPN, however it hasn't connected for months and has an old domain password (that I have forgotten) cached on it and won't let me log in to the box with my domain account and my current password. I can log in to the box as local administrator, and from there connect to the domain via the VPN, but how can I update/refresh the password on the domain account so I can log in again? Logging off disconnects me from the VPN. I'm running windows XP SP3. Here's what I've tried that hasn't worked:
1) Logging in as administrator, connecting to the VPN, locking the machine, and unlocking with the domain account/new password. The domain account is an administrator on the local box, but it can't unlock.
2) Logging in as administrator, connecting to the VPN, removing and re-adding the domain account as an admin (this requires me to type in my domain account/new password, but I still can't log in using the domain account).
3) Remembering the old password... just not happening
Any ideas short of dragging the machine to work and connecting to the domain without the VPN?
