User can not log on to the domain while Network Cable is disconnected.

You may face the above mentioned situation when a user tries to log on to a domain while Network Cable is disconnected. This generally happens if the following conditions meet:


  1. Password Caching is disabled. Check using Registry Editor on the local PC.
  2. User account is created with different language. Make sure account name which is cached at the local machine has the same as stored in AD.
  3. Home Folder path in User’s property contains a blank space. Make sure there is no blank space otherwise users can’t log on to the domain.

I will shout more on this if time permits.
