i’ve 3 desktop pc and 1 laptop registered into Nethserver. When they are connected to LAN everything work correctly but for example if i take my laptop and go away from office i can’t access with my user credentials because windows 10 tells me that is not able to find the domain controller. Is there a solution to solve this problem?
You have 2 options here:
- Log in using a local account. This has the backdraw that you have no access to the profile of your domain account (IE: folders where you store your documents, images etc…)
- Use cached Domain credentials: https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/PAM_Offline_Authentication
For SSSD (what NS is using) https://docs.pagure.org/SSSD.sssd/design_pages/cached_authentication.html
@davidep @giacomo shouldn’t cached authentication be possible by default?
I guess it depends on the workstation setup. When the laptop is away it decides what to do if the DC is not available.
The third way is set up a VPN connection.
