Is there any way to manually sync or reset a cached domain password on my PC? I can't do this when not connected to the network as I get "Domain not available". I am remotely connecting to the windows network. The problem is, I am forced to logon to my PC using my old domain password that has been cached on my PC. I then remotely connect to the Domain and, once connected, I and up with a password conflict. I'd like to be able to manually update my locally cached password so it matches my current Domain password. Any advice would be appreciated.

We get this all the time with remote users.

Log onto your machine with your cached credentials.
Establish your VPN remote connecton.
Lock your screen (WindowsKey + L)
Unlock using your new domain password.

This will recache your credentials and you should be good to go.

mmarable thanks for the good answer. However - what id there is no VPN? Consider the scenario where there is a remote user with cached credentials and disconnected from domain for a prolonged period of time. Is there a way to reset cached password without domain being available?

i dont believe there is. cached credentials dont expire so i dont see why you would need to change your locally cached password. you can disable the 'logged on using cached credentials' nag message by doing the opposite of what this article suggests. (set true to false and 1 to 0)
