user authentication problem in AD

By Ryu98 ·
I've deleted a temp user from active directory, but the user can still logon if she disconnect the network cable and waits until the profile loads. Then she puts the net cable back and she can start using the pc.

I deleted the profile manually on that computer thinking that the profile was cached. But still no luck.

Any suggestions? How do i force users to authenticate to the domain controller?

Thanks in advance

AD problem?

by rjluvkc In reply to user authentication probl ...

Does not sound like you have an issue with AD...but you do with users. If this person is not supposed to be logging in, why is she still there at a pc? Even logging into a pc with cached credentials will not allow her access to domain apps or servers. I am confused however as to why she is still there if her account was deleted?

Does the user still show Domain/local access

by oldbaritone In reply to user authentication probl ...

Is there still an account on the computer for the domainname/username at the local-computer level? Delete it from the system there, too.

And look at "Interactive Logon: number of previous logons to cache"

You can set it to 0, but that means no one would be able to login if the Domain Controller is not available.

Was everything deleted?

by jfuller05 In reply to user authentication probl ...

When you delete a user account, you can choose whether you want to keep the files created under that account; however, e-mail messages and computer settings for the account will be deleted.

If files are kept for that user, the account can still be accessed.
