Hello, I bought my laptop home from work where I have a domain account on AD.
I can login at home away from the domain using cached credentials which is normal. That is fine.

The problem is, I built a new AD server on my home lab, and logged into this new home lab domain using a new user account.

Now I cannot log back into my original work domain account. Do cached credentials get deleted once you log into a new domain ?
Is there any way I can get back into that cached credentials account without going back into work and connecting to the work domain ?

Thanks for any help.

No way I am aware of, unless potentially you gave a backup.

Hello thanks for that.
I thought cached credentials always remained on your computer.

So is it correct, that if you log on to another domain/user account, you lose your cached credentials for your original domain/user ?

Thanks.

That is my understanding. You can't be connected to two AD's at the same time, so it would have discarded your old ones.

Hello, I do not mean connected to two ADs at the same time.
I mean when I reboot and try to log in using cached credentials for the previous AD, I cannot get back into that account.

This only started to happen after I connected my computer to a new AD.

Thanks for any help.

You would have had to remove your laptop from the work domain in order to join and subsequently log on to your lab AD. Once you do that the cached creds of the old domain dont exist

You will need to go to work and join the laptop back to the domain and logon again to cache credentials

pretty much what they are saying is you computer can only be setup to connect to one domain at a time, when you changed domains you losts your saved credentials and not you have to rejoin your work domain to get them back

Exactly.

I would think that doing a System Restore would roll back the registry to the old domain settings.

This is just a guess.

if you have VPN access, you can connect in via RAS and join the domain remotely to get your cached creds back
