You cannot log on after you correctly change your logon credentials
Article ID: 829652 - View products that this article applies to.
After you change your password, you cannot access the workstation if you log off and then try to log on again. This problem occurs after you log on to a workstation that contains cached credentials (password and domain), then change your domain password while you are connected to the domain by using a dial-up or a VPN connection, then log off, and then log on again. However, if you turn off the Automatically use my Windows logon name and password option, you can log on to the workstation.
This problem occurs because the new domain password is not synchronized with the password of the cached credentials. When you log off and then log on again without a network connection to the domain, you cannot access the workstation. If you turn off the Automatically use my Windows logon name and password option, the changed domain password is synchronized with the cached credentials. Therefore, you can log on.
