Hi all -
I'm in a quandary - we have a new President and he will be working out of a remote office with no file server, the only access they will have back to the home office is with VPN. Now he will spend time at the home office (not sure how much but he will be here sometimes) so here's the question: Do I put his laptop in the domain or not (there will be a docking station at the home office for him to use)? Will it help when he makes the VPN connection to be part of the domain or cause problems? I'm torn which way to go - for setup and configuration, security etc, being part of the domain is easier (ok - so it forces them to log into the computer rather than have it boot up with no password). But being in a remote office, not sure if it will cause him (or me) problems. My gut check is to go ahead and put the computer on the domain - even if he only is here for a few weeks out of the year - but I'm just not sure if that is the best solution. So I ask for all of your input.
