Hi

An unrelated question on laptop security but would be glad if someone could answer. What's the usual practise when it comes to assigning local usernames and passwords. Should the users be given local administrator accounts? If laptops are part of domain, how can the users continue to logon from their homes when there is no domain available and they do not have local accounts on laptops?

Besides best practices suh as Keningston Cable security lock, disk
parity encryption, admin user renamed, a very effective way to prevent
robbery, is to assign the laptop with a legal document signed by the
user making them responsible for the asset, if the user get stole or
"lost" their laptop then they should pay for the value of the laptop.
Being aware does not make a user responsible but does when you charge
back them for the price.

Cheers
